About the Division of Physiotherapy

Denna sida på svenska

Physiotherapy encompasses the knowledge of the human body in motion and its function. Physiotherapists help individuals to strengthen health and prevent or rehabilitate disease and injury. The theoretical foundation is based on human biology, medicine, and social and behavioral sciences.


The vision of the Division of Physiotherapy is to develop and implement knowledge through high quality education and research, contributing to health and function on societal, group and individual levels.


The Division of Physiotherapy is responsible for courses within the Study Programme in Physiotherapy as well as courses at master’s level, freestanding courses, executive and professional courses and postgraduate education. Read more about education at the Division of Physiotherapy.


Research in the area of physiotherapy as well as research and development in the field of medical education, is mainly conducted through the research groups within the division, but also by affiliated external researchers. Besides driving the main subject forward, research at the division contributes to a research based education.  Read more about research at the Division of Physiotherapy.
