Mission, vision and strategy of higher educational institution Fizioterapevtika


Higher educational institution Fizioterapevtika is reinforcing the community of professors, researchers, students and other associates and is also striving for its recongition at home and broader in Europe. Its research, education and professional activites is based on the following values:

  • To ensure the highest quality and excellency possible
  • Academic freedom for its associates and students, particulary creativity freedom
  • Ethical and responsible relations between people, society and environment

To stop perceiving physiotherapy only as a list of excersises and procedures, but also as a scientificaly based profession, we have to put effort into expansion of specific knowledge and into development of own standards for practice and education. Therefore Fizioterapevtika has orientated its mission and vision on this particular field. In recent years, physiotherapy has become a dinamic profession, which is rapidly evolving alongside biomedical science. Because of this, physiotherapevtical procedures need to be based on scientific principles, be scientificaly accurate with the ability to be provable. In the EU and broader around the world, physiotherapy has become an academic study with its own research institutions and excellent publications of its findings.


Higher educational institution Fizioterapevtika with its quality programme of education and research is training excellent staff for taking on difficult assigments and work in the field of physiotherapy.


Higher educational institution Fizioterapevtika is becoming a exemplary higher educational institution and is fullfiling its vision primarily by its efforts and care for excellency, both in the educational and research fields. The managment of Fizioterapevtika wants to exceed the expectations of students and society. With its achievements and work, Fizioterapevtika is directed towards business excelency and satisfaction of students, employes and patients.

Higher educational institution Fizioterapevtika will collaborate with different professionals from the field of economy, social-development sphere, medicine, social gerontology and others in the form of research teams and groups. It will research important questions regarding the region in which it will be actively included. Special attention will be diverted towards current questions and problems of social and health care politics, which are connected to physiotherapy. Physiotherapy is becoming more and more recognised in the scientific-research field, where it proves the positive effects of physiotherapeutical procedures on the speed of patient rehabilitation.

In cooperation with domestic institutions (research insititutions and healt care organizations) we will conduct researches, which will analize the state in the Slovene region. Higher educational institution Fizioterapevtika will try to deepen the scientific-research activity and cooperate in projects, which are connected with foreign and domestic research institutions.
