Bachelor in Physiotherapy

 

World Confederation of Physical Therapy states, “Physical therapy provides services to individuals and populations to develop maintain and restore maximum movement and functional ability throughout the lifespan.” Physiotherapists play a significant part in most healthcare teams and are involved in the maintenance and restoration of movement and function in a range of client groups.

The course offers you the opportunity to acquire advanced theoretical knowledge and a deeper understanding of research and shows you how to integrate knowledge with clinical skills and experience.

According to WHO, by 2050, 20% of the world population will be above 60 years old. Against this backdrop and inevitably, the need and demand for prehospital care and rehabilitation is expected to increase. Consequently health care manpower to encompass the needs of the growing population will be needed.

In light of this, AMU offers innovative educational program to meet the various demands and needs of society in the areas of management, clinical and health related scientific field.

AMU is one of the pioneer universities in producing health care professionals. Currently we are diversifying into the pre-hospital, rehabilitation, diagnostic imaging and therapeutic oncology care.

Degree and diploma holders in these fields have the advantage of fulfilling the gap that we will be encountering to maintain the ratio of a health care personnel to the total population.
