A bachelor’s degree is an academic certification obtained after completing a program of study lasting three to seven years. It is often sought by students who wish to continue studying and obtain higher degrees.

What is a Bachelor in Physiotherapy? Physiotherapy, or physical therapy, is the practice of using exercise and movement, either coached or mechanically assisted, to facilitate recovery from illness or injury. It also encompasses examination and diagnosis to determine what therapy is necessary, and the research and development of new methods of physical rehabilitation. A bachelor’s degree program in physiotherapy usually involves the study of the sciences behind practices, such as anatomy, psychology and physics, as well as medical courses more specific to the field. There is also a hands-on component involving observation and assistance in certified medical facilities.

Degree holders will be able to find many more opportunities, such as employment in hospitals, health centers or facilities specifically dedicated to physical therapy. They can also work in private practice for further specialization, which tends to yield higher salaries. Additionally, a bachelor’s degree in this area can create opportunities for further medical study.

The financial toll of this course of study is dependent on variables such as the country you live in or which school you choose to attend. Research your options and contact your desired school for specific information.

In addition to obtaining work in certified general medical facilities, physical therapists are also afforded a wide number of options for specialized work. This can include physiotherapy exclusively catering to sports injuries, pediatric therapy, obstetrics or orthopedics, among other areas. These jobs can fall under the auspices of government, commercial industry or the educational sector.

For the UFV it is important that your training is carried out from the technical and human point of view: in Physical therapy we do not treat injuries, we treat people.

The scientific-technical preparation is fundamental to perform treatments that recover the functionality of our patients but, for your training to be comprehensive, we can not ignore the way in which the injuries affect the person, taking into account that we are biological beings -psychosocial.
