International Advisory Board for Hunimed Physiotherapy School

Training excellent physiotherapists, based on the best experiences worldwide: this is the aim of Hunimed Physiotherapy School. In order to tune our didactic proposal with those experiences, an International Advisory Board composed of 9 international experts of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation has been constituted.

In this video a short overview of the first meeting of the Board, with interviews to 3 members explaining the objective of the Board,  the guidelines of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy on Physiotherapy education and the main skills required for a physiotherapist specialized in neuro-rehabilitation.
