Oncologic physiotherapy is a new speciality that aims to prevent, treat and/or resolve the after effects of the oncologic process and treatment (surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy), that may be generated by a patient, with physiotherapeutic techniques that include therapeutic physical activity.

This training programme is based on the most relevant scientific evidence, and includes all aspects of onco-haematolological physiotherapy and palliative care. Moreover, it boasts the country’s best specialists and aims at a therapeutic and intervention model where the patient is the protagonist of his / her treatment.
