Health care education with services to society is a dynamic step taken by Shri Charotar Moti Sattavis Patidar Kelavani Mandal, a progressive trust of India in providing world class education to students.
As a first step in the first phase, we have started a Bachelor of Physiotherapy course in Ashok & Rita Patel Institute of Physiotherapy under Charotar University of Science & Technology (CHARUSAT) from this academic year (2009-10) with a total intake of 40 seats. It has now total intake of 75 seats. It is a four and half year programme comprising of 8 semesters and 6 months of compulsory rotatory internship in various hospitals. The institute has Memorandum of Understanding with hospitals for a total of 1100 beds. The institute also has the highly qualified teachers who are specialized in various departments of physiotherapy.
The vision of the institute is to become a dynamic global institution in a knowledge driven world through excellence in teaching, research and social contributions. For this, the course curriculum has been framed in such a way that it has basic courses, clinical courses, skill development and research oriented courses with an aim of enabling students develop their skills and refine them towards the research studies.
Physiotherapy plays a very vital role when the child is born in to this world and directly or indirectly it is involved till the old age. It involves directly when there are some injuries or pathological conditions and indirectly as each and every physical activities that are carried throughout their life. Hence each department in medical sciences is associated with a role of physiotherapy towards a patient care.
For anything to become a success, it requires a team work. Hence to work towards a vision, we also got a team of faculty who are more dedicated and interested. With the help of them, we will reach to greater heights in the forthcoming year.
