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.

This one-year Master’s programme, gives you 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. It is unique in its multidisciplinary focus on both fundamental and clinically applied scientific research which gives you insight into underlying mechanisms like pain and interventions and how to treat patients. We use recent innovations, such as virtual reality and eHealth.

This master is in English and is scheduled in such a way that the programme can also be combined (part-time) with work as a therapist or clinician (then you opt for a longer training course). Experience with clinical reasoning is important and no pre-master is required for this master.

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.
