A visit to a physiotherapy student 

At HyMy-Village, physiotherapy students are completing a practical internship as part of their studies, the purpose of which is to practice professional and customer service skills. Practical learning situations take place under the guidance of a supervising teacher. In addition, student colleagues may also be monitoring the learning situation. 

During the first visit, a general physiotherapeutic examination (60 min) is conducted, in which the goals, wishes and needs for the visit are discussed. Based on this, a physiotherapy plan is made together with the training customer to support his or her own goals. 

A visit as a physiotherapy training customer may include, for example, examination of functional capacity, guidance of therapeutic practice, manual treatment, and general health promotion. 

For the visit, you should wear casual clothing in which moving is easy. Functional tests are mainly performed in underwear. Shorts and sleeveless shirts are also good for the visit.

What is a training customer? 

Everyone is welcomed as a training customer in HyMy-Village. Doctor’s referral is not required. As a training customer, you will be acting as a customer for our students in a safe and supervised learning environment. This practice enables supported customer encounters corresponding to the actual practical work that the students will face within their own professional fields.  

With training customers, it is possible for students to practice their professional skills in a safe and supported learning environment, under the guidance of a supervising teacher and staff. Some of the skills that students will be learning: 

  • Interaction 
  • Professional skills 
  • Customer service situations 
  • Multidisciplinary cooperation 
  • Documentation 
  • Data collection. 

Training customer visit is a learning situation and it will therefore include e.g. guidance from the supervising teacher. The supervising teacher will always check and approve the examination and rehabilitation plan. Hence, interviews, examination, and other tasks might be slower compared to other professional services. 

If a training customer appears to be under the age of 13, his or her age will be checked. Parental consent is required for those under the age of 13 to participate in the activity.
