In my classes, the students acquire the basics they need to care for and treat patients’. The lecturer in the Degree in International Physiotherapy, Samuel Young, explains what his subjects are like

The lecturer Samuel Young graduated in Physiotherapy at the University of Melbourne (2002) and specialises in the branch of the locomotor system and sports physiotherapy. He has extensive professional experience, having worked in several regional hospitals in Western Australia; he provided primary care to aboriginal communities in Northern Australia and has also worked as a physiotherapist at several clinics and sports clubs in Melbourne, Ireland and the United Kingdom. He is currently a member of the teaching staff of the Degree in International Physiotherapy at the School of New Interactive Technologies (Escola de Noves Tecnologies Interactives – ENTI-UB) and the University School of Health and Sport (Escola Universitària de la Salut i l’Esport – EUSES-UdG), where he teaches the subjects of Assessment in Physiotherapy (1st year), Fundamentals of Physiotherapy (1st year) and Manual Therapy (2nd year).

In the first term of the first year of the Degree in International Physiotherapy, Samuel Young teaches the subject of Assessment in Physiotherapy, where he teaches students aspects related to the extent of movement, restrictions and how the extent of movement can be measured. The goal is to learn to assess, from the perspective of physiotherapy, the functional state of the patient or user, by considering their physical, psychological and social aspects. In the second term of the first year, Mr Young also teaches the Fundamentals of Physiotherapy, focusing on learning about the tools required for the appropriate practical and theoretical development within the framework of passive joint mobilisation. Thus, while studying this subject, students learn various manual techniques applied in mobilisations and in movements of the joints.

In addition to these two essential subjects in a physiotherapist’s training, Samuel Young also teaches Manual Therapy in the second year; a course that expands concepts learnt in Fundamentals of Physiotherapy, ensuring that students develop the intellectual abilities, and the technical and manual skills needed to assess the patient’s functional status. In short, according to Young, the three subjects taught are essential in the day to day work of the physiotherapist. They are all very important because they are based on technique using the hands, and are therefore essential in exercising the profession when it comes to attending to and treating patients.

Lastly, Samuel Young highlights as a major advantage of these studies the fact that it is a university training carried out entirely in English. He is convinced that this will open up the professional horizons of his students, since it will allow them to work all around the world.
