On Friday, 15 June, 2018 our conference hall became the venue for the scientific conference of physical therapists organised by the Croatian Society of Physiotherapists and Libertas University, under the auspices of the City of Zagreb, The Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Science and Education.
The opening of the conference was marked by the addresses of Snježana Benko, president of the Society of Physiotherapists and professor Duško Pavlović, PhD, Rector of Libertas University. Deputy Mayor of the City of Zagreb also addressed the attendees on behalf of the city.
The opening speeches were followed by a range of lectures held by physical therapy experts for Croatia and abroad, emphasising the importance and necessity of physical therapy in each individual’s life. Especially interesting was the panel held by Alan Šustić and Stanislav Peharec on the application of the musculoskeletal ultrasound in physiotherapy, followed by its demonstration.
Our University’s Faculty of Health Sciences has made a significant contribution to this important branch of medicine by initiating the university undergraduate study programme of Physical Therapy.
