The specific educational objectives of the course are achieved through theoretical and practical education in the disciplines that are fundamental to the international cultural fields related to Physiotherapy and learning of contents in English favors the inclusion of professionals in the international sphere. Said educational fields allow students in Physiotherapy to acquire the skills necessary to identify the preventive and rehabilitative requirements of the patient. The specific practical objectives related to the profession are evaluated through practical tests with real patients or with simulated clinical situations, analysis and discussion of clinical cases and internship in structures specialized in the rehabilitation field. The competence and the relational capacity that are necessary for the physiotherapist, in order to establish an effective relationship with the patient, with caregivers and the professional system, is in fact developed through the teachings of human sciences and educational psychology, aimed at acquiring listening skills and dialogue management with patients and family members. The interpersonal and communication skills are developed through work in small groups, simulations, role playing, training activities and the final exam. The verification of the achievement of the learning results takes place through written, oral and practical tests, as well as through the evaluation of clinical tutors of the profession, following a period of clinical training. The Physiotherapist, at the end of the training course, has acquired knowledge, competence and relational skills, with particular reference to professional responsibility, care and rehabilitation, therapeutic education, prevention, management, training/self-training, effectiveness evidence-based practice (evidence based practice)/research, communication and relationship.

 

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.
