ABSTRACTIntroduction: In the professional training process, it is important for the Physiotherapy student, besides acquiring the knowledge, to contextualize that knowledge and apprehend it. Therefore, it is important to analyze the perspectives of the students regarding the disciplinary concepts, as these provide an idea of how they practice in their professional work.
Objective: To analyze the perspectives on disciplinary concepts of Physiotherapy students at "Manuela Beltran University".
Methods: A qualitative study with a phenomenological design and an exploratory scope was carried out, by means of semi-structured interviews with nine students of the Physiotherapy program undergoing the practice levels II, III, IV or V, which corresponds to students in their sixth semester or later. We asked about the students' perspectives on the concepts chosen by the authors as being representative of the discipline: health, disease, body, movement, disability, rehabilitation, and inclusion.
Results: It was showed that the undergraduate students manifested different approaches to address the concepts, assuming some from the biological paradigm, while other do it from a holistic approach. In addition to the proposed concepts, other categories described by students appeared.
Conclusions: With the development of the syllabus, students had an evolution regarding their understanding of the disciplinary concepts, taking into account that the program is consistent with their historical background, being generated in the students an approach to contemporary models lately developed, such as the multidimensional and the biopsychosocial.
