In addition, you will train with a team of lecturers highly qualified for teaching and linked to the professional world. What are the main characteristics of the teaching staff?

Most of the lecturers have PhDs and are specialised; they come from prestigious foreign universities and have a great vocation for university teaching, as well as extensive experience in both the academic and professional field. Their ongoing link with the day-to-day reality of the profession, allows them to keep the contents and methodologies they employ constantly up to date.

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.
