BScNursing and Patient Care - Physiotherapist

More information



The physiotherapist is much more than a masseur or aerobics instructor. The massaging and exercising is only a small element of the wide variety of techniques with which a physiotherapist creates magic: the joy of painless movement. Although our world is moving fast, we don’t move enough. And so, a physiotherapist will always have many tasks. With your creativity and empathy, you could be the creator of a new treatment, the new Dévény, McKenzie or Schrott! You don’t necessarily have to work in health care; you’ll have opportunities to work for wellness, fitness or sport centers, spas and spa-hotels or even sports clubs. If you have the experience you can also start your own business, or you can open a private physiotherapy praxis.
Examples of subjects: basics of physiotherapy, manual techniques, physiotherapy of cardio-respiratory diseases, locomotor diseases, neurological-psychiatric physiotherapy, infant-paediatric and obstetrical-gynaecological physiotherapy, rehabilitation, electro-diagnostics, radiology and imaging procedures.
