The lecturing staff on the Degree in International Physiotherapy at the School of New Interactive Technologies (ENTI-UB) and the University School of Health and Sport (EUSES-UdG) is characterised by its specialisation and its strong focus on teaching. Most of the tutors hold doctorates from prestigious universities around the world and have excellent teaching skills, as well as wide-ranging experience in the academic and medical fields. They are also committed to passing on values, to educational excellence and to their own ongoing training, which allows them to stay up to date with the latest advances in their field.
Another positive feature common to all the staff on this degree programme is their double profile as academics and researchers and as practising professionals. They include professionals of the stature of Mariano Gacto, Director of the Degree in International Physiotherapy, where he teaches the following subject courses: Fundamentals of Physiotherapy (1st year), Assessment of Physiotherapy (1st year) and Practicum II (4th year).

Bertram Müller, who teaches the first-year subject course in Physics, is a trained biomechanic with extensive international experience in countries including Scotland and Germany. Anna Prats, with an extensive career in research, teaches Biology in the first year, while the Australian Claire Knott teaches several subject courses including Manual Therapy in the second year.
