Bachelor of Physiotherapy (vocational-training-integrated only)

The primary aim of the BSc in Physiotherapy is to train physiotherapists to become reflective practitioners capable of acting according to scientifically sound principles and of building up-to-date scientific knowledge into their professional work.

The course addresses the current demand for academically trained physiotherapists who are directly involved in the care of patients and who provide therapy unsupervised and on their own responsibility. Students will extend their knowledge of prevention, therapy, rehabilitation and palliation; they will learn how to devise therapeutic and preventive concepts responsibly, to implement projects on current developments in the health sector and to manage problem solving processes. They are empowered to work under their individual responsibility on a scientifically and ethically sound basis, and can identify optimum treatment pathways for patients by applying evidence-based medicine.
