Conduct high-quality clinical research on musculoskeletal health

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Sciences

Musculoskeletal disorders generally lead to pain and restricted mobility. They are the leading cause for functional disabilities and physiotherapy treatment.

Scientific research on musculoskeletal health and clinical treatment has increased exponentially over the last 15 years. By learning to conduct clinical research yourself, as a clinician or therapist you will better understand and value the possibilities, limitations, and results of scientific evidence from clinical research as well as its translation into clinical practice.

In this one-year Master’s programme, you will receive theoretical education within the context of clinical challenges on musculoskeletal disorders and physiotherapy, as well as skills in clinical experimental data collection, data analyses and research methodology.

This master is unique in its multidisciplinary focus on both clinical experimental research (e.g., underlying mechanisms of pain or pathophysiology) and applied studies (like virtual reality or eHealth interventions).

To follow this programme, a background with skills in clinical reasoning is needed and a pre-master is not required. The programme is fully in English and can be followed in part-time.   

Discover your Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Sciences programme

In this Master’s programme, you will learn how to conduct high-quality research in the field of musculoskeletal physiotherapy, from searching for theoretical evidence of clinical problems to translating knowledge into clinical solutions. You will apply pre-clinical and innovative research methods in a lab environment, and put the knowledge and skills you acquire to use in your own clinical research project.
