Abstract: Comprehensive specialist postgraduate education is essential to obtain the level of qualifications necessary to work as a physical therapist in the field of pediatric physical therapy. These qualifications cannot be acquired within the framework of an entry-level bachelor program. The Institute of Physiotherapy at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences has developed a Master of Advanced Studies in Pediatric Physical Therapy program, which is composed of 3 Certificates of Advanced Studies plus a master thesis. The MAS in Pediatric Physical Therapy is the first comprehensive specialist postgraduate educational program for physical therapy professionals in the field of pediatrics at an academic level to be offered in the German-speaking region of Switzerland.
