The prerequisites needed by students who wish to enroll in the Degree course in Physiotherapy are:

  • Adequate initial preparation according to what is foreseen by the current regulations to enter courses with a nationally limited number of participants
  • Good predisposition to human contact
  • Good team working skills
  • Ability to analyze and resolve problems
  • Ability to autonomously acquire new knowledge and information by evaluating them critically.

Possession of a study title that meets one of the following criteria:

  • a secondary school diploma that gives access to the University, issued by a state or equivalent educational institution of the Italian education system in Italy or abroad;
  • final qualification of secondary education issued by an institution belonging to a foreign school system, located in Italy or abroad, obtained following a course of at least 12 years of schooling;
  • final qualification of secondary education obtained in a school system that includes 10 or 11 years of schooling, supplemented with one or two years of university, provided that all the exams scheduled for those academic years have been passed.

Candidates enrolled in the last year of secondary school can also participate in the selections at the state and private school institutions of the Italian education system or at a foreign secondary education institution that allows the achievement of a valid qualification for admission to courses of higher education of the Italian system with the condition, if the test results are positive, to present the diploma or qualification just obtained at the time of the subsequent enrolment to the courses, under penalty of exclusion from the list of admitted candidates.

Students already in possession of an academic degree (obtained in Italy or abroad) and those who come from another degree course or university degree are required to observe the same procedures indicated in this call for applications and take part in the admission test.

Formal didactics

This didactic form includes:

- lectures: dealing with one specific topic that is identified by a title and performed by a teacher with the help of computing and/or multimedia supports based on a predefined calendar and given to students enrolled to a specific course year and divided into small groups;

- seminars: didactic activities with the same characteristics as lectures but carried out contemporarily by many teachers with different competences and, as such, noted in the lesson registers in each one of them.

During the last period of the course, when non Italian students will have acquired sufficient command of the language, some courses may be taught in Italian.

Non formal didactics

It deals with interactive didactic activities aimed at small groups of students and coordinated by a tutor whose task is that of facilitating the students in the acquisition of knowledge, abilities and behavioral models. Learning mainly occurs through stimuli deriving from problem solving and the use of methodological skills needed to resolve them and taking decisions as well as through the direct and personal use of actions (gesture and relational) in practical exercises and/or attending clinical departments, surgeries, territorial facilities and research laboratories.

A) Teaching courses.

The integrated teaching courses are held by one or more teachers in function to the specific objectives assigned to the course.

The specific objectives of the individual courses that are contained in the exam programs and their programming are proposed annually by the course teachers within the start date of the enrolments for the new academic year.

B) Professional activities.

During the three year degree course, the student is required to acquire the professional specifications in the nursing field by carrying out internships in facilities identified by the degree course council (CCL) and in the defined periods. The internship can also be done in developing countries.

C) Elective activities.

The degree course council organizes the offer of elective didactic activities that are created with lectures, seminars, interactive courses with small groups among which the student is able to exercise their own personal option until achieving an overall number of 6 credits.

Each student autonomously chooses the elective activities among the didactics supplied.

Office hours: Prof. Servadio sees students every Tuesday from 3.30 p.m. to 6 p.m. upon appointment (annamaria.servadio@unicamillus.org).

The degree in Physiotherapy lasts three years.

Graduates in physiotherapy at UniCamillus carry out, in an autonomous way or in collaboration with other health professionals, 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. In reference to the doctor’s diagnosis and prescriptions and within their competences, the graduates in physiotherapy will elaborate the definition of the rehabilitative project aimed at identifying and meeting the needs of the disabled person’s health; they will autonomously practice therapeutic activities for the functional re-education of motor, psychomotor and cognitive disabilities by using physical, manual, massage and occupational therapies; they will propose the adoption of prostheses and aids, learn to use it and verify its effectiveness; they will verify the responses of the rehabilitative methodologies implemented to the goals of functional recovery; they will carry out studies, didactic and professional consultancy activities in the health services and in those where professional skills are required.
