Physiotherapy, Community specialization

The Master degree in Physiotherapy was conceived and planned according to the core principles of the Bologna Process, in particular its conceptions of a learning process centered in the students’ needs, as well as the European Credit Transfer System, which enables the assessment of the student’s effort throughout the course. The curriculum aims to provide students with a deep knowledge of important domains of Physiotherapy, as well as other areas of knowledge that constitute its practice, such as functional sciences, morphological sciences, Biomechanics, Psychology, Physics, Biostatistics and Pharmacy. The first trimester of the course is common to the five existing fields of specialization; afterwards, students will be distributed by the same five fields. The second year will include an Internship and respective written Report, corresponding to a total of 30 credits.
