Physiotherapy takes up an ever-increasing position in modern medicine. The globalization process enables the fast flow of state-of-the-art professional information and healing techniques among physiotherapists. The necessary prerequisite for such exchange is English in physiotherapy. For that reason, it is of great importance for students of physiotherapy to have decent education in English for physiotherapists, that has recently become one of the most important areas of English for Specific Purposes. The following teaching material has been written due to need to create additional teaching material for the courses in physiotherapy at the College of Applied Sciences “Lavoslav Ružička” in Vukovar. It consists of seven chapters including topics such as: What is physical therapy (physiotherapy)?, levels of structural organization of the human body, the 5 senses, the nervous system: facts, functions and diseases, the human musculoskeletal system, the respiratory system and the cardiovascular system. By using this teaching material, the students will be able to broaden their competence regarding both human anatomy in English and vocabulary in the field of physiotherapy. The teaching material can also serve as an impetus for further self-study in various fields of physiotherapy.
