BPT Graduate Program

BPT is a Graduate Program that spans three years, with the first two focusing on foundational sciences across health and physiotherapy. Anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, pathology, and microbiology are taught by medical faculty specialists. Humanities like sociology, psychology, ethics, and law are instructed by respective experts. Core physiotherapy science such as biomechanics, exercise therapy, and electrotherapy are taught by dedicated faculty. Ethical considerations are integrated in the second year, tailored specifically for physiotherapy practice. English and Kannada courses accommodate diverse student needs.

The third year emphasizes clinical studies. Medical aspects are taught by faculty from relevant medical disciplines, while core subjects are covered by college experts. Research becomes a focal point in the fourth year, complemented by a mandatory research project.

The curriculum employs diverse teaching methodologies: didactic lectures, experiential learning, problem-based learning, participative sessions, and independent study. Clinical rotations in the third and final years are competency-based. During a six-month internship, students rotate through various departments, engaging in patient care and administrative duties under supervision. The internship includes exposure to evidence-based practice through journal clubs and evidence synthesis programs.

Internship

The BPT curriculum includes a six-month rotational internship in various specialty areas. JSS Hospital provides comprehensive facilities for internship across all specialties. Additionally, JSS College of Physiotherapy offers a robust community based rehabilitation program. We welcome students from other colleges, including those from different countries, to participate in either the entire internship or specific parts of the program.
