Master in Sports and Exercise Physiotherapy (MPhty)
The "complexity and range" of the Physiotherapy profession has grown beyond the limits of general Practice. Continuous professional development is now essential in order to guarantee a quality service and has become a professional responsibility.
This Master's aims to provide specialist training in physiotherapeutic needs and recovery of function in the world of sports competitions, both for elite athletes and beginners.
In their professional practice, an expert physiotherapist has to be, from a scientific perspective, flexible and capable of adapting to all sorts of changes. They also need to be prepared to survive in the complex world of healthcare and take the reins of their own professional development. Consequently, this program is an opportunity to further specialise in sports as an area of professional development.
The training will be oriented towards providing efficient and effective healthcare, given that therapies are carried out with the aim of benefitting the patient and delivering results.
There is currently a high demand for labour in the sports physiotherapy market, as we are facing an increase in healthcare and sports practice. There is an ever-increasing culture of preventing and treating injuries caused by physical activity. As a result, this specialist course is taught in English to cover the existing need for physiotherapists who want to specialise in sports and also be able to work in English, thereby increasing the opportunities available to them as professionals. Graduates will be able to provide services to athletes who do not speak Spanish and increase their ability to get work from other countries in Europe, America and Asia, where demand is growing for physiotherapists who have trained and gained experience in Spain.
This master starts on October 20th.
