Inter-university Master’s Degree in Nervous System Sciences: Neurotoxicology, Neuropsychopharmacology, Neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy, Neurorehabilitation - 8th edition
The Master's degree is aimed for graduates in: Medicine, Psychology, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, Nursing, Nutrition, Veterinary Science, Biological Sciences, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Biomedicine, Biomedical Engineering and all the qualifications equivalent to experimental sciences, life sciences and health sciences.
Research into Neurotoxicology and Neuropsychopharmacology: Blended research track.
Invasive Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy: Blended professional track.
Neurorehabilitation: Online professional track.
The aim of the professional specialities is to train professionals to examine and treat patients who suffer from neuromuscular pain and give them extensive knowledge of the central and peripheral nervous system in pathological situations so that they can suggest possible therapies.
These specialities are designed for health professionals who want to acquire new knowledge and abilities to improve their daily practice on issues of the central or peripheral nervous system and who also want to have sufficient scientific training to be able to opt for a doctoral degree related to their profession so that they can lead a clinical research group.
This master's degree is designed for two types of students:
- Recent graduates who have scientific concerns and who wish to work in the field of knowledge in general and, specifically, on the central and peripheral nervous system.
- The online component of the research track is designed specifically for professionals who are already working but who wish to do a doctorate on the nervous systems to increase their professional potential.
