The combination of vocational education and university education enables you to acquire a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree, as well as completing a recognized apprenticeship. This dual education-integrating bachelor's degree program gives you the ability to apply the acquired knowledge to the profession, to independently identify, analyze and solve problems with scientific methods as well as to work interdisciplinary and problem-oriented, taking into account the needs of the patient.
The dual Bachelor program in Physiotherapy – Technology and Therapy with integrated vocational training aims at imparting broad basic knowledge about methods and theories of Physiotherapy. By increasing their specialist knowledge, graduates are particularly qualified to act on evidence. The combination of the Bachelor’s program with a professional training in clinical practice results in a close interlocking of practical and university qualifications at a high level.
Having obtained their university degree, graduates master the demands of professional practice using current scientific theories and methods. They are able to conduct theory-based examinations of patients who are inhibited in their ability to move and to treat them effectively. In order to do so, they combine current evidence with their personal competences as well as with the patient’s individual demands. In the process, they work self-reliantly, self-dependently, and interprofessionally. Additionally, they possess the ability to carry out preventive measures, consultations, and trainings. They are able to reflect and evaluate their actions scientifically. They conduct the related tasks of documentation, quality assurance, and management in accordance with the requirements of social law applicable to prevention, therapy, and rehabilitation.
