The world's largest school of physiotherapy”
A complete Postgraduate Diploma created for physiotherapy professionals, which will allow you to combine your training with other occupations and access from anywhere with total flexibility"
Respiratory physiotherapy is part of physiotherapy, but focusing on the pathophysiology of the respiratory system, both medical and surgical, requiring a demanding knowledge of the respiratory system and the existing techniques for its treatment, healing and stabilization.
The disciplinary consideration of respiratory physiotherapy with a scientific-technical basis began in the late twentieth century, thanks to technological advances that allow measuring respiratory work and techniques, and is currently becoming necessary and essential in different hospital units. Therefore, it is essential that physical therapists update their knowledge in respiratory physiotherapy and acquire new techniques and tools to apply in their daily practice.
Physiotherapy is considered one of the therapeutic pillars in the management of patients with pulmonary diseases, whether obstructive or restrictive, chronic or acute.
The increase in the incidence of respiratory pathologies that we are going to see during this Postgraduate Diploma, both in children and adults, considerably affects the quality of life of the patients who suffer from them, as well as our health system, with a high social and economic cost due to hospitalization days, sick leave and early death.
The Postgraduate Diploma has a teaching staff specialized in respiratory physiotherapy, who contribute both their practical experience in their day-to-day work in private practice, as well as their lengthy experience in teaching at national and international level. In addition, it has the advantage of being a 100% online training, so the student can decide from where to study and at what time to do it, in this way, they can flexibly self-direct their study hours.

An effective and reliable Postgraduate Diploma that will take you through an interesting and efficient learning process so that you acquire all the knowledge of an expert in the field"
Our teaching staff is made up of working professionals. In this way, we ensure that we provide you with the training update we are aiming for. A multidisciplinary team of professionals training and experienced in different environments, who will cover the theoretical knowledge in an efficient way, but, above all, will put the practical knowledge derived from their own experience at the service of the course: one of the differential qualities of this course.
This mastery of the subject is complemented by the effectiveness of the methodological design of this Postgraduate Diploma. Developed by a multidisciplinary team of e-learning experts, it integrates the latest advances in educational technology. This way, you will be able to study with a range of comfortable and versatile multimedia tools that will give you the operability you need in your training.
The design of this program is based on Problem-Based Learning: an approach that conceives learning as a highly practical process. To achieve this remotely, we will use telepractice: with the help of an innovative interactive video system, and learning from an expert, you will be able to acquire the knowledge as if you were actually dealing with the scenario you are learning about. A concept that will allow you to integrate and fix learning in a more realistic and permanent way.
Our innovative telepractice concept will give you the opportunity to learn through an immersive experience, which will provide you with a faster integration and a much more realistic view of the contents: “learning from an expert”
With a methodological design based on proven teaching techniques, this Postgraduate Diploma will take you through different teaching approaches to allow you to learn in a dynamic and effective way"
The contents of this Postgraduate Diploma have been developed by the different teachers of this course, with a clear purpose: to ensure that our students acquire each and every one of the skills required to become true experts in this field.
