The academic model of our course innovates by applying competency-based teaching that simultaneously develops knowledge, skills and attitudes, in which the student becomes the protagonist of their learning.

The pillars of this approach are based on a systemic teaching of anatomy and physiology, on the simulation of situations of professional practice, on intervention in a real context of internship, on the close relationship developed with reference partner entities and in interaction with other Sports and Health professionals.
