Interuniversity Master I in Athletic Preparation for Football: Theory and Techniques (administrative campus: Pisa)
This Masters is a theoretical and practical course for developing and conducting physical training programmes for amateur and professional football teams. Taking an evidence-based approach to sports activities, the Masters is taught by highly qualified international speakers with specific, proven experience in the football sector. Teachers who have practical experience with professional and amateur football teams will explain various training approaches and strategies, problems in each category and possible solutions by industry experts. Participants are offered a wide range of practice exercises that will enable them to plan and conduct athletic preparation programmes in the various phases of the competitive season. They will study reconditioning programmes for injured athletes and how to use the most common assessment tests correctly to check a programme’s effectiveness. In addition, participants will learn how to suitably analyse assessment test results and data collected for monitoring training load.

Master I in Expert Trainer for Sensory and Multifunctional Disabilities (with distance learning)
The Level I Master program in Special Education for Sensory Disabilities has as it objective a highly specialised preparation of professionals qualified and trained to intervene in an educational setting with subjects from infancy to adulthood that have a deficit, pathology and/or significant alteration to the auditory system and/or visual apparatus as well as communication pathologies. A Master with these characteristics will also provide instruments well suited to a professional refresher course.
The objectives of the Master class are pursued in collaboration with various entities and institutions that are traditionally engaged in the work of sensory disabilities.
In the educational or scholastic integration of students with sensory disabilities the Special Education expert for sensory impairment needs to operate particularly in the extracurricular field in connection with other scholastic and non-scholastic professionals, as well as in collaboration with healthcare services when programming and achieving educational aims and objectives. In particular the course involves accompanying the Master class student in the general processes of acquisition and development of pupils with sensory disabilities or affected by communication pathologies with various etiologies that can be traced to a single disorder or as part of a complex of multiple disorders.
Master I in Osteopathy for Neuro-Musculo-Skeletal Disorders
Our bodies move as the result of a fine organisation of the neuro-musculo-skeletal (NMS) system. The study of NMS dysfunction is very broad and complex in scope. Motor activities are in fact the result of a chain of events within the body, from the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles contracting and acting on the mobile structures of the body. This functional balance can be altered by different circumstances that are very common in everyday life - trauma, constitutional or acquired postural abnormalities, functional overload, altered emotional state, etc. This Masters programme aims to study the principles that govern the control mechanisms of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system, basing itself on osteopathy and the latest knowledge. It will identify the disfunction of parts of the body associated with various diseases, suggest ways of correcting dysfunction through the use of specific interventions and promote the development of scientific research in these fields.
Professional Master in “Hands-on Surgical Approaches to the anterolateral skull base, reconstruction and indications”

The primary aim of this professional master is to enhance participants’ theoretical and practical skills necessary to perform surgical approaches to the anterolateral skull base for endocranial diseases. Specifically, participants will be expected to:

- acquire anatomical knowledge about simple and complex approaches, gaining understanding of the relevant functional changes and clinical applications;

Master II in Exercise Programming for Exercise-sensitive Pathologies (Exercise Therapy) Course not running
The benefits of physical activity are scientifically well-known and proven. The Masters programme, now in its fourth year, aims to produce exercise professionals with particular expertise in functional assessment and exercise programming for people with exercise-sensitive pathologies. It responds to an industry need for professionals in the field who can work in a team, having specific practical skills in carrying out and managing work protocols. The programme focuses on people with chronic-degenerative diseases who can gain significant benefit from appropriate regular physical activity.
The course is structured to provide a foundation for participants to be able to examine cases from both medical and motor aspects, thereby stimulating a strong, fruitful collaboration between the medical and exercise science fields in order to provide effective exercise programmes. Graduates of the Masters programme will be able to use appropriate tools for exercise assessment and prescription based on quantitative, verifiable information.
Master II in Patient-Oriented Clinical Evaluation as a Decision-Making Instrument in Neurology and Neuroscience (tumours, epilepsy, movement disorders) Course not running
In clinical decision-making, assessment is always necessary for making a rational therapeutic choice. It also sanctions the outcome through the use of analytical tools specifically oriented toward the disease and the patient, which both separately play a part in the broader evaluation of the clinical cost benefit ratio. However, the choice of assessment tools is not always congruent with objectives, nor consistent between similar studies, which negatively affects the reliability of such studies. In the field of neurology, patient assessment is complicated by the difficulty of trying to represent behavior and brain functions in an objective manner, since they vary according to the type of disease.
In recent years, the cost benefit ratio has become increasingly complicated, taking on complex functional, economic and social values​​ without adequately developing the criteria for choosing patient assessment tools, thus losing some of its applications in both the choice of therapy and in verifying the effects. The objective of this Masters programme is to improve participants' knowledge of various assessment tools (tests, questionnaires and technological and clinical instruments) which have become crucially important in different areas. Then, through practical examples we will approach the "personalisation" of care and the defining of outcome criteria - the last phases of the decision-making process - according to the most modern trends in medicine. This Masters programme responds to the need and urgency to develop these skills in staff who work or will work in multidisciplinary fields for outlying medical-surgical treatments such as brain tumors, epilepsy and movement disorders.
Master I in National Expert in Nordic Walking Course not running
This course looks in depth at correct Nordic walking technique and will develop participants' skills in teaching and methodology for designing and implementing specific exercise programmes. Nordic walking is an increasingly popular activity that can be practiced by a broad spectrum of people in terms of gender, age and health. Scientific studies have also proven its effectiveness in combatting obesity, cardiovascular illnesses, rheumatism, Parkinson's disease, depression and neuro-motor disabilities. The Italian Nordic Walking Association (ANWI) has been running Nordic walking instructor qualification courses for years. This Masters course was created through continuous interaction between the University of Verona and ANWI, identifying the need for training progression in order to adapt to the complex requirements of the population. The course aims to train students to become National Experts in Nordic walking - i.e. physical education graduates with specific skills in assessment and exercise planning through nordic walking, able to adapt programmes to suit elderly people or those will chronic illnesses. "National Expert" is recognised in the Nordic walking world as a qualification above that of Instructor, and gives access to the possibility of becoming a National Coach, which is the highest level qualification.
