Physiotherapy is a medical profession providing healthcare services with respect to restoring and maintaining proper body functionality and mobility. In many settings, physical therapy is combined with other medical services, aimed at prevention and treatment of illnesses. The main aim of Physiotherapy studies is to educate professionals qualified for the professional career in healthcare.

Pursuant to the new act on the profession of physiotherapist, § 17, section 1 of the regulation of Minister of Science and Higher Education of 26 September 2016, on conditions of studies, Physiotherapy will be offered only as long-cycle master degree studies among other programmes like: Medicine, Medicine and Dentistry, Laboratory Medicine, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, Law, and Canon Law.

Students who want to work as physiotherapists in Poland and start their 5-year long-cycle Master degree programme in Physiotherapy after 1st October 2017, are obliged to complete
6-month practical training after graduation, take National Specialization Exam for Physiotherapists, and register themselves in the National Physiotherapy Registry.

Our 5-year full-time MSc degree programme has been developed with full reference to recent changes in health service provisions in EU and within education standards and directives of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT).The programme includes classes and lectures taught by experienced and highly qualified teaching staff, including senior physiotherapists and other healthcare professionals. Students attend both theoretical classroom-based learning and practical clinical-based training. They gain the knowledge of the most up-to-date forms of manual therapy (e.g. Kinesiotaping) and rejuvenation and wellness therapy (e.g. sports massage, sports nutrition, relaxation techniques).

MSc in Physiotherapy prepares students for independent work with ill and disabled patients applying physical methods with preventive and healing purposes. Students gain the abilities of planning and controlling the effectiveness of a medical rehabilitation process. Acquiring these abilities is possible thanks to an extensive schedule of theoretical and practical classes within special methods used in physiotherapy, neurodevelopmental techniques (PNF,neuromobilisation), physical medicine and functional diagnosis and rehabilitation programming. Graduates are prepared for work in scientific research institutions, state administrative and municipal centers and gain the right to apply for a specialty in physiotherapy and PhD studies.

Apart from the compulsory study programme, students have the opportunity to attend voluntary supplemental certified courses.

The MSc programme includes clinical placements, integrated throughout the course. It enables students to gain valuable experience and enhance their learning. There is an opportunity to do practical training under the supervision of highly-qualified physiotherapists in a range of clinical facilities located locally, nationally and internationally.

The graduates of BSc Physiotherapy have sufficient qualifications for working in public and private healthcare institutions, physical rehabilitation centres, sports centres, sanatoriums, wellness and fitness centres, massage salons, and also for working as self-employed physiotherapists. They can also choose to work in alternative settings such as academia, rehabilitation centres, nursing homes, schools for physically challenged children, educational centres, sport centres, Spa & Wellness facilities, fitness clubs, health and beauty clinics. Additional employment opportunities exist for researchers, advisors or consultants in educational, industrial or government institutions.
