The aim of this paper is to describe the development of an innovative bachelor's degree program for physiotherapy directly affiliated with the medical department, which is a unique approach to making physiotherapy an academic course in Germany. The previous system for qualifying as a physiotherapist was amended by the adaption of qualification objectives resulting in a model that links scientific and vocational knowledge from the beginning of the study. Several lectures support interprofessionality. The vocational training is fully integrated into the curriculum. The exemplary concept is monitored by an extensive quality management program. The approach meets general recommendations of experts and can serve as a model for other universities.
