Rotations of clinical stays: These are pre-professional clinical practice activities carried out in hospitals and other Physiotherapy services, under the supervision of qualified professionals, with the aim of putting into practice the actions (assessment, methods, techniques, etc.) of Physiotherapy on real patients; for the student to take on professional attitudes, regarding interpersonal relationships, ethical principles, concern for quality and become integrated and familiar with other professionals and activities of the hospital or service, as well as the patient care team, such as, for example, attending clinical sessions. In each rotation and center, the student is assigned a physiotherapist, who will act as a tutor in collaboration and be in contact with the professor of the subject and the Internship Coordinator, supervising their performance, giving them the appropriate guidelines and corrections and participating in their evaluation.

The commitment of Nebrija University to the academic requirement, training in leading companies and institutions, innovation in multidisciplinary programs and international projection, places the University in the top positions of the most important rankings.
The International Ranking QS Stars awards Nebrija University the maximum score in the quality and satisfaction of students in teaching, employability of the graduates and the internationalization of the institution.
The national rankings also recognize Nebrija University as the first Spanish university in teaching and second in employability, highlighting its performance in research, knowledge transfer and internationalization.
Nebrija University, in accordance with the aims proposed in "The Nebrija Contract", directs its efforts to turn its students into valuable professionals in the labor market. To this end, the Nebrija Institute of Professional Competences (INCP) was created, which leads the training in professional skills, employability, managerial skills, coaching, personal branding and any other topic related to professional, personal and social development.
The activity of the Competence Institute covers all the activity segments of the university. On the one hand, it offers three subjects that are distributed throughout the undergraduate degree and that enable students to effectively manage their work, proactively develop personal and professional self-improvement processes and properly guide their first steps in the workplace.
In addition, the INCP incorporates coaching modules for employability in different postgraduate programs of the university, and designs and carries out customized in-company training actions for different projects in companies and institutions.
The methodology of the actions, which are completely personalized and eminently practical, provides the participant with an adjusted analysis of his/her personal characteristics and his/her fit with the demands of the working world and the company, and offers an individualized development plan that is complemented with practical actions in which he/she must learn to solve real-life situations.
It is not the same to study physiotherapy than to learn to be an UNSTOPPABLE physiotherapist, with a digital, international, multidisciplinary and unique training.
