The CEU San Pablo University of Madrid started to offer university studies in Physiotherapy in 1998. As a result of our experience and adapting the studies to the European Higher Education Area, we have offered the Degree in Physiotherapy since 2010, a degree that lasts four years and is worth 240 ECTS credits. Work experience carried out in different hospitals and specialised clinics is undertaken throughout the four years of studies, with the aim to develop clinical skills and the integration of the student in the working world. In order to carry out their studies, each student is designated with a tutor who will advise them and guide them personally throughout the course of their academic progress.
OBJECTIVE OF THIS DEGREE
The objective of the Degree in Physiotherapy is to provide our students with all of the necessary training to be able to perform numerous tasks as a physiotherapist, be that in the private sector (doctor’s surgeries and clinics) or the public one (hospital network, social and health services, etc.), both nationally and internationally. Over the last few years, the demand for professionals in this sector has increased in order to cover the needs of a population that suffers occupational and traffic accidents, but which additionally, and thanks to the advances achieved, has a greater life expectancy rate therefore presenting a greater number and longer duration of chronic diseases. At our university, we are responsible for giving our students an excellent theoretical and practical training so that they are capable of taking care of their future patients in an optimum way and can develop a successful professional career.
