Master in Neurorehabilitation

There are many professionals needed to address neurological injuries (neuropsychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, social workers, clinical psychologists, nurses, psychiatrists, neurologists, rehabilitative doctors, etc.), however it is impossible to face a therapeutic approach without a holistic approach focused on the person and of a transdisciplinary nature such as the one offered by the Master in Neurorehabilitation of ISEP, pioneer for its interdisciplinary nature.

The daily clinic with neurological patients manifests the need within our society to have both clinical and research professionals who are trained with excellence in the field of neuroscience and neurorehabilitation.

The Master in Neurorehabilitation will allow the development of the neurorehabilitation's own abilities in its different interdisciplinary aspects, as well as to know the neurorehabilitation techniques of the different areas of intervention.

In addition, ISEP offers you the possibility of completing this Master in a single year thanks to its intensive format at ISEP Valencia. Or, perform it in two years.

The ISEP methodology combines practical learning and theoretical knowledge in a dynamic and participatory way.
