MSc in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy

If you are interested in clinical research and in musculoskeletal health, the Master programme Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Sciences might be exactly what you are looking for.

Musculoskeletal disorders are the leading cause for functional disabilities and physiotherapy treatment. Scientific research on musculoskeletal health has increased exponentially over the last 10 to 15 years, both in volume and quality. As a clinician or therapist, reading the literature is one way to stay up-to-date. Yet, you will much better understand and value the ins and outs of scientific research when you do research yourself.

In our Master programme, you will learn how to conduct high quality research in the field of musculoskeletal physiotherapy; from searching for theoretical evidence of clinical problems to translating knowledge into clinical solutions. You will perform pre-clinical research in a lab-environment, and apply the acquired knowledge and skills in your own (clinical) research project. This Master programme is unique in its multidisciplinary focus on clinical experimental research in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. It offers you the necessary scientific expertise to advance physiotherapy practice. ... [-]

Top in Netherlands Masters 2019/2020. Learn about the brain's complexity Keep your head cool Brain disorders, in particular neurodegenerative diseases and mental illnesses, are among the most prevalent and debilitating diseases of our time. They are typically caused by the interplay of environmental factors and genetic variation in multiple genes, which is currently being mapped by major international initiatives. Future brain research should therefore focus on integrative projects as a next step in characterizing this complex environmental/genetic interplay and in revealing how it translates into brain function and/or disease. To succeed, we need a new generation of neuroscientists capable of integrating information from genes and proteins to synapses, and from networks up to complex brain function and dysfunction.

Cardiovascular disease is, together with cancer, a leading cause of death in the Western world. In the Netherlands, more than 100 people die every day due to cardiovascular disease. While patient outcome following acute cardiovascular disease has improved tremendously in the last decades, patients suffer more and more from the burden of chronic diseases like diabetes, thrombosis or heart failure. To improve patient outcome, more scientific research focusing on prevention, pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy is needed. With your Master’s degree you may contribute to further improvement of health care for these patients.
