There have been two types of physiotherapy training
in Belgium: a diploma course of 3 years' duration and a degree
course of 4 years' duration divided into two cycles. Proposals
for changes to the system for physiotherapy education are pending.
The physiotherapy qualification leads to an academic
degree (diploma) and allows for postgraduate education at university
level. Physiotherapists are involved in both teaching and research
but there is no recognition of physiotherapy specialists.
It should be noted that there are both French and Flemish authorities
to consider the academic recognition of diplomas.
The association does not have their own education
