Bachelor in Physiotherapy


Program Overview

UniCamillus’ Degree Course in Physiotherapy is a 3-year program that prepares students to carry out prevention, cure and rehabilitation interventions in the areas of motor skills, higher cortical functions and visceral ones resulting from pathological events with particular focus on etiology, congenital or acquired traumas suffered in war zones.

The qualifications issued by UniCamillus are valid throughout Europe according to EU Directive n. 2005/36/CE, but are also widely recognized in many other non-EU countries.

In reference to the doctor’s diagnosis and prescriptions and within their competences the graduates in Physiotherapy at UniCamillus will be able to:

  • elaborate the definition of the rehabilitative project aimed at identifying and meeting the needs of the disabled person’s health;
  • autonomously practice therapeutic activities for the functional re-education of motor, psychomotor and cognitive disabilities by using physical, manual, massage and occupational therapies;
  • propose the adoption of prostheses and aids, learn to use it and verify its effectiveness;
  • verify the responses of the rehabilitative methodologies implemented to the goals of functional recovery;
  • carry out studies, didactic and professional consultancy activities in the health services and in those where professional skills are required.

The capacity of adequately using English provides the possibility of being inserted in pertinent workplaces not only at a national and European level but also outside the European Community.

Scholarships Financed by UniCamillus

In the belief that motivated and deserving students must be supported in the achievement of their academic and professional ambitions, UniCamillus has decided to finance scholarships to non-EU citizens based on the assessment of the student’s economic situation, merit and studies regularity.

For the academic year 2018/2019 UniCamillus offers to non-EU citizens residing abroad a significant number of grants and scholarships for the partial/total coverage of the yearly fee due for the degree courses.

Didactic Facilities

In virtue of the peculiarity of its project, UniCamillus has been able to enter into any agreements for hospital apprenticeships that will be activated in function to the specific educational needs.

In this way, UniCamillus will be able to make students carry out the practical part in Roman hospitals, polyclinics, and research centers. In the first year of the course, through internships, the student will already be able to verify the correspondence between their expectations and the professional role experienced. The internship experiences offer individual students the opportunity to learn the activity of looking after sick people on the job (obviously under the guidance of doctors, nurses and other health professionals).

During your course at UniCamillus, you might avail yourself of the Schengen visa, that will allow you to travel, study and work in 26 countries, as well as extend your residence permit in Italy for a year after graduating, with the aim of continuing your training experience.
