The UNIC Physiotherapy programme becomes a member of the European Network of Physiotherapy in Higher Education (ENPHE)

The Physiotherapy programme of the University of Nicosia is the first program in Cyprus that, from 2023, became a member of the European Network of Physiotherapy in Higher Education (ENPHE). The coordinator of the program, Dr. Christina Michailidou, undertakes the representation of Cyprus in matters related to the Tertiary Education of the Science of Physiotherapy.

ENPHE consists of more than 156 member institutions and represents 31 countries. The members of ENPHE work on common values and principles aimed at aligning educational programs and promoting new developments in the field of Physiotherapy in Europe. Network members collaborate with colleagues from across Europe on how to become more active around Physiotherapy education and health, participate in interactive forums and working groups, explore ways to facilitate learning, innovation and co-creation to improve educational structures and approaches. Cooperation with other educational and professional bodies as well as with students is a goal for ENPHE. Two events are organised every year. There is a seminar (spring semester) where working groups discuss and develop projects. In the fall semester the working groups organise a conference in which they share their projects with faculty members and keynote speakers. The development of new collaborations, educational or research activities is of primary importance for both events. The next conference will be held in Prague in October, organised by the Charles University, is entitled “Educating Physiotherapists for a Global Mindset”.
