Superior School of Health of Alcoitão (ESSA)
With more than five decades of existence, ESSA is a pioneering high education establishment and a reference in its areas of teaching activity: Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy.
In addition to these degrees, it offers master’s degrees, postgraduate courses and actions in education and ongoing training, both in these areas of expertise and in the context of social work.
Its teaching is guided by high quality standards and a balance between theoretical and practical components, from the first year, with direct connection to Alcoitão Rehabilitation Medicine Center. The recognition of its quality is also visible in the fact that its courses have a higher employability rate when compared to the national average (high education institutes, public and private), in the training areas in which it teaches.
