Master of Physiotherapy

KPT/JPS(N/0915/7/0001)06/27(MQA/PA14590)04/27

The Master of Physiotherapy programme is developed to upgrade the qualification of physiotherapists. The programme particularly covers specialisations in musculoskeletal and neurological physiotherapy. While the former is concerned with muscles, bones and joints, the latter focuses on therapy for neurological conditions and trauma such as head or spinal injuries, strokes, or even brain injury.

The Faculty will also allocate clinical postings for students to aid in a practical learning environment. With a Master’s qualification in Physiotherapy, physiotherapists can be employed as physiotherapy managers in health-related centres, public and private hospitals, consultant physiotherapists, academicians at universities/colleges and research officers.
