Physical therapy is an essential segment of a modern healthcare system. School of Rehabilitation Sciences at The University of Faisalabad was a pioneer to start a 5-years degree program of Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2009 to provide comprehensive training in the core areas of musculoskeletal, neurology, and cardiopulmonary physical therapy. These programs are offered in state of the art, conducive learning environment with modern learning resources, especially real patient clinical settings for community rehabilitation. The School has an aim to provide education, research facilities and consultancy in the health science disciplines of the highest quality to produce competent healthcare professionals.
The program’s curriculum incorporates theory, practice and research based components to develop core skills, knowledge and evidence based treatment for physiotherapy practice. The focus is given to various subjects as per the guidelines of Higher Education Commission. In order to gain hands on experience, students practice in real patient settings at Madinah Teaching Hospital, which is also a major requirement for the completion of the degree program. Furthermore, there is special emphasis on character building and personality development of the students, who are encouraged to take part in extracurricular activities. Alumni of School of Rehabilitation Sciences effectively play their role as clinicians, consultants, academicians, and community rehabilitation experts.
I assure the candidates who opt for joining this School that their stay here will be highly rewarding.
