Specific skills
  • 40_4_RAE13 - You will be able to identify, following the criteria of physiotherapeutic practice, the functional state of the user, considering the physical, psychological and social aspects of this.

  • 40_4_RAE4 - It will incorporate techniques of assertiveness and social skills by applying them, in education for health in users throughout their entire life, in the realization of practical seminars.

  • 40_4_RAE5 - You will be able to identify the factors involved in teamwork and leadership situations, in the theoretical and/or practical activities in which you work in this modality.

  • 40_4_RAE8 - You will be able to explain the pathophysiology of diseases by identifying the manifestations that appear throughout the processes, the medical-surgical treatments, fundamentally in their physiotherapeutic aspects.

  • 40_4_RAE3 - You will identify the psychological and social aspects in the physiotherapist-patient relationship, including the result in the state of health or illness of people, families and the community.

  • 40_4_RAE2 - He will explain the principles of biomechanics and electrophysiology, applying their main indications in the field of physiotherapy.

  • 40_4_RAE6 - You will analyze the anatomical structures and the physiological changes that occur in people as a result of the interventions of the physiotherapy professional, in their application in the specific subjects.


HUMAN ANATOMY I presents the basics of human anatomy and functional anatomy a through the conceptual, historical, and terminological study of anatomy.

Therefore, themain objective of the subject will be to train the student to be able to understand the mechanism of functionality of the musculoskeletal system.

In the same way, the student will be prepared to receive the learnings that the following disciplines contribute to the student in the course of his curricular trajectory: the physiology of the exercise, the biomechanics of the physical activity and sport, prescription of physical activity for health, rehabilitation, and systematization or structure of movement and training theory.

This subject has a gender perspective.
