Studying the Degree in Physiotherapy, means betting for a Degree in Health Sciences with a great demand and recognition among society, where patient care is based on the application of physical agents (movements, water, heat, electricity...) and aiming at preventing, recovering and improving health and people’s quality of life.

By studying physiotherapy, the student acquires a special sensitivity towards the so important health science, both in terms of direct attention and of research developing -through the degree- their knowledge and professional values: responsibility, respect, empathy, team work, excellence.

The high index of labour integration, the possibilities of self-employment and the diversity of areas it can be practised in (paediatrics, sports, pulmonology, traumatology, neurology, gynaecology, rheumatology, geriatrics, cardiology...), are important reasons for wanting physical therapy to become your profession. 

And what a better way to do so than in the public degree offered by the UV Faculty of Physiotherapy, pioneer in Spain in this field of study. Apart from counting with a teaching body of excellence (periodically assessed by national quality agencies) is attractive for counting with 40 European credits of compulsory work placements taken between the third and fourth year in the main hospitals, health centres and private clinics in Valencia; additionally, there is the possibility of carrying out exchanges with other European Universities we currently hold the corresponding agreements.  Likewise, the use of new active learning methodologies combined with more common ones, ensure a proper teaching-learning process for obtaining different professional competences. 

Lastly, the training acquired while studying the Degree in Physiotherapy can be complemented with postgraduate studies currently offered by the Faculty of Physiotherapy of the Universitat de València.
