    Preventing, promoting and protecting people's health

    About the Bachelor’s degree

    Live expectancy, chronicity and sedentary lifestyles are increasing the demand for health care today and in the years to come. For this reason, the Physiotherapy degree must address new areas and lines of action beyond the sometimes exclusive rehabilitation role. Therefore, it is necessary to reinforce and prioritise the prevention of illness and the protection, maintenance and promotion of health.

    The University of Deusto offers this degree within the area of Health to provide innovative and effective training to those whose vocation is to preserve, restore and increase people's health in order to improve their everyday living conditions.

    The degree covers a wide range of areas of knowledge: health promotion, therapeutic exercise, rehabilitation, physical activity, functionality, management of chronic, cardiovascular, respiratory, neurological, traumatological, paediatric, uro-gynaecological, sports diseases, people with disabilities, emerging populations such as the elderly, mental health, community health, etc.
