The main aim of the course is to present and introduce the students to the management of the upper trunk and the upper limbs injuries in sport. The objective of the course is to get the student to be able to plan and carry out all steps and aspects of the injury management: examination of athletes, designing and performing rehabilitation programs, preventing injuries and using supplementary techniques and physical agents. At the same time, the goal is for the student to know the background/etiology and epidemiology of sports injuries of the upper body. The objective of the course is also to teach the students to transfer the theoretical knowledge into practice and develop the ability to work in a team of health professionals, and finally, to critically evaluate their own work and the work of their colleagues.
The social activities will be organized by the Student Council of UP Faculty of Health Sciences. Participants will have the opportunity to confront their views, acquire knowledge and make discoveries, while developing lifelong friendships and gaining unforgettable memories.
By completing the Summer School, participants will get awarded with 3 ECTS.
