On May 27, 2022, Professor Mykola Lukyanchenko, Director of the Institute of Physical Culture and Health, paid a working visit to the Axis Rehab s.r.o. Rehabilitation Center in Piešťany, Slovakia. As a result of the visit, a cooperation agreement was signed. In particular, now Drohobych University students taking the educational program “Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy” will have the opportunity to practice not only in Belgium and the Czech Republic but also in one of the best rehabilitation centers in Slovakia. In addition, those interested will be able to improve practical skills in this centre during the holidays.

Today, the profession of physical therapist and occupational therapist is one of the most relevant and in demand in Ukraine. As a result of hostilities, many military and civilians receive various injuries. Thanks to the correct and timely work of physical therapists and occupational therapists their body functions can be restored giving people a chance to return to normal life.

Therefore, it is especially important to adopt the world’s positive experience of rehabilitation activities.
