The long tradition of physiotherapy studies arose from the need to provide society with healthcare professionals that detect, diagnose and treat physical effects and impairments, severe and chronic disabilities, etc. In addition to this important work, physiotherapists must also have good training and a human attitude to help patients through the often-painful recovery processes.

When developing the Degree in Physiotherapy at the University CEU San Pablo, we particularly took into consideration the professional areas that our students may access on finalizing their studies. The aim of this was to provide training adapted to labor market demands.
