If you are interested in clinical research and in disorders that affect the musculoskeletal system, the Master's programme Musculoketal Physiotherapy Sciences is exactly what you are looking for!

In the last 10 to 15 years, research in physiotherapy has increased exponentially, both in volume and quality. Many clinicians are consumers of research when reading the literature to stay up-to-date. But to really understand the ins and outs of research, you have to conduct research yourself. At least once. Producing science is a lot more exciting and satisfying than consuming it.

If you are interested in clinical research and in disorders that affect the musculoskeletal system, the Master's degree programme Musculoketal Physiotherapy Sciences might be exactly what you are looking for. You will learn how to conduct high quality research in physiotherapy, from pre-clinical research in a lab environment to evaluating the effects of novel interventions in the clinic, and apply the acquired knowledge and skills in your own research project.

With a Master's degree in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Sciences a large and varied range of career opportunities awaits.

The department offers a limited number of its Master's degree students the opportunity to acquire an accreditation for Teaching in Higher Education. This additional programme is taught in Dutch.
Graduates may use their scientific perspective and training to join or return to clinical practice, being more competitive for (more senior and leadership) positions in primary, secondary or tertiary care facilities. Having a Master's degree from a leading institution can be helpful when applying for management or policy-making positions in physiotherapy. Others may aspire to an academic or commercial research career. The program is an ideal preparation to commence a PhD in Physiotherapy or related fields in Health Sciences. Others may become successful lecturers at a vocational institute. And for those not specifically looking for a specific career opportunity, having had a well-rounded scientific training will give you much better perspectives on developments in physiotherapy care and related health domains.

Shortlist of career opportunities:
Clinician with a scientific training
Clinical researcher
Lecturer in higher education
PhD student
Knowledge broker in Physiotherapy or related Health fields
Manager / policy maker in health care domain
