The Physiotherapist of the UIS is a professional with a great humanistic, ethical and critical sense, open to the change and progress of science, committed to the political, social, cultural and economic development of the country, who bases his actions on integral training, which allows him to develop competences in the cognitive, subjective and social dimensions.

It maintains an open attitude towards research and interdisciplinary work that allows it to validate and generate the knowledge and development of socially significant alternatives of action. 

His professional practice is oriented to the design, execution, direction, and control of programs or projects of Physiotherapeutic intervention for the promotion of health, kinetic well-being, the prevention of deficiencies, disabilities, and changes in physical condition in individuals and communities at risk, the recovery of systems essential for their maintenance and participation in interdisciplinary processes of enablement and integral rehabilitation.

According to Law 528 of 1999, regulating the professional exercise of the physical therapist, actions are defined for the design, implementation, direction, and control of programs or projects for the promotion of health and kinetic well-being, the prevention of deficiencies, functional limitations, disabilities and changes in physical condition, in individuals and communities at risk, the recovery of systems essential for human movement and participation in interdisciplinary processes of enablement and integral rehabilitation. 

Promotion of Health, Well-Being and Physical Condition and Primary Prevention: The physical therapist at this level develops primary prevention and promotion activities, aimed at the various general population ethereal groups, as well as specific groups, to evaluate and educate the community about the protective factors of health and the various risk factors that predispose to alterations in human physics kinetics. These programs included community projection, occupational health, and programs aimed at high-performance populations.

Secondary prevention: The Physiotherapist performs the diagnostic and prognostic evaluation of movement disturbances, which guide decision-making for therapeutic intervention. It uses procedures aimed at enabling and retrieving functionality in the individual, based on internationally validated methods in the field of human physics kinetics. 

Tertiary prevention: In this case, the physiotherapist is part of the interdisciplinary team involved in the rehabilitation of disabled people, through a continuous and coordinated process that proposes for their integration or reintegration into the family, social, and/or work environment.
