The training programme provides students with skills applicable to the clinical field based on the ethical, deontological and disciplinary principles of the profession, establishing helpful relationships with the patient and his/her family, promoting actions of functional recovery, overcoming disability and breaking down barriers, in support of integration and social participation.
