During this two-week programme we will look at rehabilitation and persistent health problems (PHP) from every angle. We respond to the World Health Organization’s call for action to promote, protect and restore health. We have chosen exercise as a key intervention. There is a lot of evidence on how people benefit from exercise. Moreover, exercise is free and has no side effects. Before the start of this course, there will be a preparatory session which can be viewed online. Get inspired by taking part.

If you decide to enroll for this summer course, you will transfer theory into practice. Together with peers and experts from the field you will acquire high clinical decision making- and treatment skills. You will acquire experience and skills on using exercise as a treatment method, when it comes to facing your clients’ PHP. Needless to say we use the latest evidence, as well as the experts opinion.  

In our case based learning lessons, we combine theory, skills and experience to solve clinical cases.  

We will focus on multiprofessional cooperation and innovation strategies to be able to set up tailor made rehabilitation programs in your own country.
