Top Bachelors in Health Sciences in Netherlands. Physiotherapy: www.hanzegroningen.eu/ip Health care appeals to you. You love working with people and you would like to mean something to them. You're a good listener, you find it easy to put yourself in other people's shoes and you have patience. Yet you also deliberately make a stand for yourself. You prefer keeping your options open and creating your own opportunities. Should you feel that all this applies to you, then Physiotherapy might be right up your street. With a ​physiotherapy diploma, you have a broad future. In your native country as well as abroad you can start in a hospital, nursing home, rehabilitation centre or a medical day nursery. Or of course you could set up your own practice. Internationally, the Dutch training is highly regarded. Programme overview Competence-based curriculum The study programme Physiotherapy is a professional allied health programme. In order to guarantee that your knowledge meets the criteria set by the professional field, these criteria are translated into competences. Your education revolves around the development of these competences. Examples of these competences are: working methodically and applying clinical-based thinking providing interested parties with information on prevention conducting research adopting a professional attitude communicating with others in your field, and with other health professionals. Study structure The Physiotherapy programme is a four-year programme (240 EC). Each year is divided into two semesters and each semester into two blocks. During these blocks, you will have approximately 17 contact hours per week; independent learning and practical training fill the remaining hours. The theoretical part is offered in small tutorial groups (12 students). An assessment takes place at the end of each block. Studying abroad As a member of the European Network of Physiotherapy Higher Education (ENPHE), the Bachelor programme of Physiotherapy is involved in the development of the European standard for physiotherapists. Due to this network you can acquire a truly international outlook: you may think, for instance, of exchange programmes with foreign Bachelor programmes. In this way you will have the opportunity to do internships abroad. Profession As a physiotherapist you work at the quality of life. A defective locomotor apparatus restricts people in their activities. It affects their freedom. Whether it is an old lady recovering from a hip operation, a construction worker with back complaints or a sportsman with an injury - all of them are hampered in their possibilities. In these cases, pain often plays an important part. As a physiotherapist, you have a number of techniques and instruments at your disposal to help the patients referred to you by their general practitioner and/or specialist. Sometimes you are able to remedy complaints, sometimes you may prevent them and sometimes you can assist people to manage optimally within their limitations. You assess the patients, make the physiotherapeutic diagnoses, draw up plans for treatment, attend to patients and give them information, for instance about exercises and prevention. Everything you do focuses on the human being behind the disorder. [-]
