Degree in Physiotherapy

Presentation

This profession, which is in high demand in the European Union, allows you to work freelance in public and private hospitals, sports centres and clubs, or set up your own physiotherapy clinic. Thanks to the language components in the initial years, UAX physiotherapy graduates have many opportunities to work and carry out professional exchanges in other EU countries.

At UAX

The training is complemented by practices with real patients in the more than 80 clinical centres that have agreements signed with UAX (Hospitals, Geriatric Centers, Sportive, Health Centers, etc.).

The University has a teaching University Polyclinic where the students put into practice what they have studied in class and a Veterinary Hospital with the most innovative facilities that allow the students to acquire skills related to the new filed of physiotherapy on animals.

Teaching Staff

The UAX students can access to laboratories and practice rooms where they can apply the knowledge acquired in theoretical classes. In the Bio-Mechanical and Motor Functions laboratory they assess human movement and conduct therapeutic approaches.

They also have access to 7 modern physiotherapy suites that simulate physiotherapy appointments and gyms. Here students discover and learn physiotherapy assessment, diagnosis and treatment techniques.

Career Development

Students receive training covering fundamental knowledge of basic sciences and scientific knowledge of physiotherapy. The programme is complemented with additional subjects enabling them to acquire new skills: Complementary Physiotherapy Treatments (osteopathy, acupuncture, etc.), Orthotics and Prosthesis, Feedback Techniques and Physiotherapy for Animals.

Employment Opportunities

Graduates in Physiotherapy can provide all of their services through the public health system, either freelance through the establishment or health centre where they work, or working in specialist services such as geriatrics, neurological centres, orthopaedics centres, cardio-respiratory centres and at sporting clubs and teams.
