The Latin American Center for the Development of Physiotherapy and Kinesiology- CLADEFK, committed to the development of Physiotherapy and Kinesiology, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, has started the preparation of a series of documents that serve as general references for consultation and information on matters of relevance to the profession of Physiotherapy and Kinesiology in Latin America, which analyzes the current situation and the impact it has on the professional community in our region.
In this document, the initial results of the survey aimed at students linked to training programs in Physiotherapy / Kinesiology in the countries of our region are analyzed, which records the perception of the experience of the training process and the repercussions that this has had on it.
We hope with this document to contribute information that guides educational institutions in the decision-making and adaptations required for quality assurance in training processes in the current context.
