Sport is growing, becoming more popular and developing in our society and thus a new professional profile is becoming more prominent: the sports physiotherapist. That is to say, a health professional specialized in preventing and treating sports injuries. If you would like to develop a career in this field, an excellent option is to study the Degree in International Physiotherapy in the School of New Interactive Technologies (ENTI-UB) and the University of Health and Sport (EUSES-UdG) at the Campus in Barcelona.
Throughout this Degree, you will learn relevant aspects in physiotherapy such as evaluation, diagnosis, design and development of treatments, with the advantage of being taught in English. Moreover, due to the collaboration between ENTI-UB and EUSES-UdG, you will learn how to incorporate new technologies in physiotherapy. You will even be able to create mobile apps and computer software applied to this field.
Therefore, being a student in this Degree, you will be granted a cross-sectional and quality education. Courses such as Anatomy, Physiology and Massotherapy will provide you with the tools to increase your efficiency in the recovering or rehabilitation of patients.
