The Master's Degree Curriculum in Physiotherapy

The Master's Degree Curriculum in Physiotherapy at Ariel University offers the student knowledge enrichment and the possibility to conduct research work in three primary areas:

  1. Promotion of Health in the Healthy Population and the Population with Functional Disabilities – The sedentary western lifestyle that characterizes our times and the increase in life expectancy, has brought the physiotherapists to integrate the fields of physical activity adapted to the various populations as part of the profession's treatment tools.
  2. Advanced Theoretical and Clinical Aspects in Physiotherapy – Deeper understanding of diverse clinical fields. For example: Musculoskeletal disorders, neurological rehabilitation, advanced rehabilitation technologies, clinical utilization of electrotherapy, treatment of patients with developmental disabilities..
  3. Administration – Numerous physiotherapists currently fulfill managerial roles at various levels, from Directors of the Physiotherapy Service in small institutes, Directors of large institutes, Regional Directors, National Service Directors through to Multidisciplinary Systems Directors. The curriculum enables present Directors as well as future Directors to expand and firmly establish their knowledge in this field.

The courses studied in the fields of administration will be taught in the study frameworks of Master's Degree studies in the Departments of "Health Systems Administration" and "Economics and Business Administration" at the University. The students can conduct their research work in the fields of Administration, under joint guidance of the staff member of the Department in which the course is taught and a staff member from the Physiotherapy Department.
