Dr. Henrrik Prendushi

Abstract: There are several studies carried out regarding the students` perception of physiotherapy as study, career choice, etc, in different developed countries. In Albania, yet, it is not made a study about it and what the students want to do after finishing the bachelor. So, we considered it necessary to discover what they think about the completed university course and their future. Our study aims to know the perceptions of physiotherapy students about their studies and what they want to do after finishing the bachelor. An anonymous questionnaire was distributed to the third year, graduating, students of Physiotherapy at the University Luigj Gurakuqi in Shkodra, in their last lesson of Occupational Medicine. This study examines students' beliefs, attitudes and opinions, as well as what they expect from their profession as a physiotherapist. The questionnaire consists of three parts.
