Description

The Masters Programme in Physiotherapy and Scientific Evidence at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya is based on the premise that, from a scientific standpoint, in order to provide personalised and high-quality services, the physiotherapist must be able to interpret the scientific data that engenders new perspectives on intervention and research. Physiotherapists must also be able to correctly apply different scientific methodologies to the knowledge-building process.Similarly, to appropriately respond to the growing demand for effectiveness and efficiency in health services, physiotherapists need to not only apply scientific findings to professional practice, but also intervene actively and productively in the various stages of scientific research and related endeavours.The training provided in this programme is designed to provide participants with the necessary skills to exercise and strengthen the practice of evidence-based physiotherapy, and to participate in the scientific development of this discipline.Now is a crucial time to provide tomorrow’s physiotherapists with specialised training in research, considering the fact that the European Higher Education Area has recently taken a step forward in scientific research training, offering students the possibility to begin careers in science upon earning their Doctorate degree. Royal Decree 1393/2007 sets out a new legal standard which grants Bachelor Physiotherapy degree holders access to research-oriented Masters and Doctoral programmes.
