About the Department

Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Department undergraduate program has been providing formal education since the 2012-2013 academic year. The students are taught theoretical and practical basic information in the field of physiotherapy and rehabilitation, and current education and training practices. Today, physiotherapists provide services with increasing numbers of approaches in increasing the quality of life related to independent movement and health in all situations where movement and function are threatened for various reasons. The present and future needs of societies that have become increasingly inactive due to the developing technology in the world and in our country make the development of the physiotherapist profession inevitable. Within the scope of the department, it is aimed to improve the quality of life of the individual with multidimensional physiotherapy and rehabilitation approaches in order to improve the functions of the musculoskeletal system and other system disorders, and to plan accurate and effective exercise programs.

Education Opportunities

Duration of physiotherapy and rehabilitation training is 4 years, and those who wish can pursue a master's or doctorate. During their education, physiotherapists study basic medical sciences such as anatomy, physiology, pathology, neuroanatomy, as well as profession-specific theoretical and practical skills such as electrophysical agents, kinesiology, manipulative therapy, basic measurement and evaluation, neurophysiological approaches, orthotics-prosthesis rehabilitation, pediatric rehabilitation, sportsman health and rehabilitation. There are therapeutic movements and electrotherapy laboratories within the department and anatomy laboratory within the faculty. There are summer internships in the 2nd and 3rd classes of the education, and practical applications within the scope of clinical work in the 4th class. Lessons are given in a way that will develop students' imagination and analytical thinking skills, with a staff of experts and professionally experienced higher education staff. Students who wish can do double major or minor with various departments while continuing their physiotherapy and rehabilitation education.

Accreditations and Memberships

Cyprus International University (CIU) Faculty of Health Sciences, Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Undergraduate Program was awarded a 2-year accreditation between 19 March 2021 – 30 September 2023, as a result of the evaluation made by the SABAK. Within the scope of the accreditation process, within the framework of the criteria determined by SABAK, improvements and innovations were made in the educational objectives of the program, curriculum syllabus and course contents in accordance with the views and demands of internal and external stakeholders. Within the framework of accreditation studies, great steps are taken to increase the various activities and seminars currently held in order to contribute to the academic development of the academic staff, to increase the student satisfaction, to increase the employment opportunities of the graduates and to facilitate the exchange of students and lecturers between universities.

Career Areas

Physiotherapists can work in various units of public and private hospitals that provide preventive, treatment and rehabilitation services (neurology, orthopedics and traumatology, rheumatology, sports injuries, cardio-pulmonary, chest diseases, intensive care, etc.), sports-health centers, various sports clubs, retirement homes and spa-thermal facilities in our country as well as abroad. With the new regulations, physiotherapists can now also work in the Guidance and Research Centers. However, since the need for academics is high, he can work as a research assistant, lecturer or manager in the Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Departments of universities. He can work as an academician by obtaining a science expertise and doctorate degree in the specialized branches of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation, and can contribute to the development of evidence-based practices by reaching the rank of associate professor and professor in the field of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation.
