Bachelor’s Degree in Physiotherapy
The Bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy makes use of modern teaching facilities that allow a variety of both theoretical and practical learning activities, some of which are made possible by the partnership with Ospedale San Raffaele in Milan.
In addition to lecture halls and seminar rooms, all of which are equipped with the necessary teaching aids, the Biomedical Library and the computer labs of Vita-Salute San Raffaele University that are made available to course students for study, consultation, research (including online research) and the completion of course assignments, students may also use other kinds of facilities that help to optimise learning regarding certain specific topics.
The gym complex
Consists of three separate areas:
- a spacious gym provided with specific motor rehabilitation equipment;
a room for the functional rehabilitation of the upper extremity;
a treatment room for shoulder and spinal disorders.
The swimming pool
The pool has been specially adapted (higher temperature, walkway for the therapist along the side of the pool, electrical hoist, handrail) to make it suitable for physiotherapy activities with patients with a range of motor disorders.
Rehabilitation inpatient wards
The rehabilitation inpatient rooms in the Department of Rehabilitation (DIMER) of Ospedale San Raffaele house a total of approximately 90 beds, split between the Functional Rehabilitation and Neurorehabilitation Units.
In addition to the facilities listed above, physiotherapists are also present in certain units of Ospedale San Raffaele, where they also perform internship teaching activities with students on the course: Orthopaedics, Neurosurgery and Thoracic and Heart Surgery Units an the Heart Surgery and Neurosurgery Intensive Care Units.
Movement analysis lab
Technologically advanced equipment is used to perform instrumental movement analysis of different kinds (kinematic, dynamic and electrical activity of the muscles). These analyses are performed on both healthy subjects and in the presence of motor function defects. They are performed for both research activities (motor coordination studies) and for teaching activities for the kinesiology course. Many dissertations are based on the analysis possibilities that this data acquisition system offers.
