In addition to external clinical internships, the Bachelor´s Degree in Physiotherapy offers a practical teaching content, in small groups, at the following centers:

The Center for Interprofessional Simulation and Research in Health Sciences (CSIICS, in Spanish) , is where you may acquire practical knowledge of specific training in Physiotherapy. The Center has 2 High Fidelity Simulation Laboratories, 1 Biomechanics and Movement Analysis Laboratory, 1 Diagnostic Imaging and Radiotherapy Laboratory, and 3 Skills and Simulation Laboratories.

The San Rafael Simulated Hospital is where you will be exposed to real clinical situations, in a safe environment, with state-of-the-art technical equipment. The Hospital has High Fidelity Simulation Rooms, Physiotherapy Simulation Rooms, a Biomechanics Laboratory, an Ultrasound Image Analysis Laboratory, an Anatomy Laboratory and a Physiology and Biochemistry Laboratory.

Both centrers have advanced and innovative technology for learning in different simulation scenarios, with direct supervision and active methodologies, by specialized teaching staff.

Physiotherapy students at Comillas receive specific training from professors linked to the professional world.
