The purpose of the study was to highlight the issues of the educational program of the educational component “Physiology of Motor Activity” for the applicants for higher education in the educational program “Physical Therapy” of the National University of Pharmacy. Materials and methods. Analysis of scientific and methodical literature, on the basis of which the work program was concluded, was carried out. Results and discussion. Motor activity is an integral part of human behavior, any movement of the human body, which is carried out thanks to the work of skeletal muscles. In a sick body, it helps to reach remission faster, improve physical and emotional state, allows to reduce the pharmacological load on the body, increases its motivation for an active life. The work program of the educational component “Physiology of Motor Activity” for applicants for higher education in the specialty 227 “Physical Therapy, Ergotherapy” of the educational program “Physical Therapy” at the National University of Pharmacy is written in accordance with the requirements of the credit-modular system of organization of the educational process. The purpose of teaching the educational component is to form in higher education applicants an idea of physical rehabilitation in patients, adequate scientific understanding of the laws of physiology of motor activity and features of the structure of functional systems and organs depending on the age of the person, as well as the acquisition of knowledge about the means of effective and early return of patients and disabled people to everyday and labor processes. The working program reflects the introduction of a competency-based approach, which establishes the level of integral, general and special competencies of the future specialists in physical therapy and the acquisition of program learning outcomes. The educational component “Physiology of Motor Activity” is structured into two content modules, which contain 13 topics. The study is completed by passing the final module control and receiving a credit. Effective mastering of the educational component is ensured by the use of various teaching methods, mastering practical skills, performing individual tasks. Conclusion. The system of training highly qualified specialists in the field of physical rehabilitation involves the study of a complex of medical and biological disciplines, among which one of the leading places is occupied by subjects that reveal the essence of movement and mechanisms of motor activity. The educational component “Physiology of Motor Activity” is aimed at studying the physiological mechanisms of voluntary movements and reveals their main characteristics. This knowledge is the foundation of high methodological training of a specialist in the field of “Physical Therapy”, which is of great importance for increasing the competitiveness of graduates of the National University of Pharmacy in the labor market
