MPT Physiotherapy is a field which provides information about human body mechanics
in normal and abnormal state of health.

MPT

The masters program in physiotherapy, Master of Physiotherapy (MPT) is a two year full time program offered by the college under various electives. These are cardio vascular and pulmonary, community based rehabilitation, musculoskeletal and sports, neurological psychosomatic disorders and pediatrics. The total intake for MPT is 10. Students may elect areas based on guide availability.

The master’s program is intensive with 80% of the curriculum covered through independent guided work. The objective of a master’s program is to foster critical thinking, confidence and self directed professionalism.

Research forms an integral part of the curriculum and weekly journal clubs and evidence synthesis presentations are mandatory. Students are expected to complete thesis following all research guidelines and the final thesis is expected to be robust and publishable.

To foster clinical reasoning, post graduates are expected to participate in administrative and patient care roles during weekly case presentations and end of posting presentations. Progress in professional attributes is monitored through a portfolio systems and completion of competencies.
