Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Undergraduate (English)



Program Goals

The English language training program of 'Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation' is a multidisciplinary program working with the other disciplines in the area of health sciences. This program will continue in parallel with the Turkish language training program of 'Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation' in the faculty and will benefit from all the laboratory facilities of this section. It will be benefited from the anatomy, physiology, and the other vocational courses from the department. The programs in English courses will be in cooperation with the other courses in Turkish language and will be conducted by instructors who specialize in the area. The entire program will be carried out with the support of our university lecturers and professors in our University.

Mission

The fundamental mission of the Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Department is to graduate professional, well-equipped and creative physiotherapists and academicians who are well-equipped with professional knowledge, act according to professional ethics, show respect towards human rights and possess life-long learning and teaching skills. Our department is also involved in multidisciplinary work and endeavors to use physiotherapy and rehabilitation services, evidence based science and advanced technology for the benefit of the society.

The aim of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation program is to train the health care professionals about evaluating and treating patients who are diagnosed by the medical staff, ensuring more independence to the disabled people in activites of daily living, redounding maximum functional ability and optimal level of preventive and curative health services to the children, adults, elderly, sick and healthy people in the four years undergraduate program.

Education

EMU Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Department, carries the feature of being the first  academic department opened in Cyprus.  With the aim of graduating successful and modern physiotherapists, our university has established collaboration protocols with the rooted universities in Turkey. Along with the collaborations, our department receives professional academic support from prominent faculty members at various institutions in Turkey. Our program has been designed in such a way that analysis, tackling problems, reaching conclusions, thinking creatively and critically, working in a team and communicating effectively have become indispensable elements of the course content. A number of collaboration protocols have also been settled with different institutions to provide our students with internship opportunities.
