Official Master's Degree in Neurorehabilitation

Ideal student profile

This master's degree is addressed to professionals in the health sciences, social sciences and sports science interested in expanding their knowledge and improving their skills in the treatment and rehabilitation of people affected by severe neurologically-based physical disabilities, from both a social and a health perspective, and in engaging in research in neurorehabilitation.

Students on this master's degree should have teamwork skills, a capacity for logical reasoning, interest in scientific and technological advances, an ability to work methodically and pride in quality of work.

Basic skills

  • Use acquired knowledge as a basis for originality in the application of ideas, often in a research context.
  • Solve problems in new or little-known situations within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to the field of study.
  • Integrate knowledge and use it to make judgements in complex situations, with incomplete information, while keeping in mind social and ethical responsibilities.
  • Communicate and justify conclusions clearly and unambiguously to both specialist and non-specialist audiences.
  • Continue the learning process, to a large extent autonomously.

Specific skills

  • Demonstrate advanced knowledge of neurorehabilitation and its technologies, and of patient care, to improve the quality of life of those suffering from a neurological disability.
  • Analyse the physical, psychological and social consequences of neurological disabilities.
  • Perform explorations, interpret these and apply advanced techniques for making diagnoses and defining therapeutic strategies in neurorehabilitation.
  • Apply knowledge of neurorehabilitation to solve problems in the specialised treatment and rehabilitation of persons with a spinal cord injury or with acquired brain damage, together with the complications specific to their pathology.
  • Use the necessary methodological grounding to plan, design and conduct research projects related to clinical practice in neurorehabilitation, thus generating new knowledge in this area.

Cross-curricular skills

  • Analyse critically, summarise and take decisions on paths of action in professional practice.
  • Formulate work protocols based on information from the scientific literature.
  • Work in compliance with the professional code of conduct.
  • Work in multidisciplinary teams within varying cultural and scientific environments in a spirit of cooperation and cohesion.
