Professor James Selfe will be a keynote speaker at a prestigious anniversary seminar in Finland during October.
The physiotherapy team at Satakunta University of Applied Sciences, Pori, have invited Professor Selfe to present at their event which will celebrate 20 years of English language physiotherapy education at SAMK.
The programme is the only one of its kind in Scandinavia and was set up in 1994 to address the large number of graduates who left Finland to work in English speaking countries. Professor Selfe is the only native English speaker to teach on the programme each year it has run.
His teaching has focused on Musculoskeletal physiotherapy, in particular his specialist area of Patellofemoral Dysfunction (knee cap problems) and Spinal Mobilisation techniques. In conjunction with colleagues from SAMK, Professor Selfe has also conducted collaborative research and had numerous peer-reviewed papers published.
The event takes place on Monday, 13 October.
