Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation


“I want to study Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation because …”

In the modern world an important problem is an inactive life requiring the fast changing developments in technology to work within a holistic approach to assist those suffering from musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular and respiratory problems to recover movement and function to their full potential. First of all, I would like to stop illness by the use of the modern education and the skills of the musculoskeletal system. If this illness already exists then I would like to plan a cure for it so that, in this way, I would like to develop my vocation.

The Content of the Education Course

The programme covers all the main systems included in modern educational programmes of Physical Therapy based on the vocational graduate course. The plan is that students attend the vocation courses consisting of theory and practical studies will be achieved during meetings at the beginning of the first semester [term]. The aim is to teach resourcefulness to students in order that they may solve with treatment the illnesses problems by planning, measuring, valuing and writing. Instructors who have knowledge about this subject would give the courses.

“What are my career opportunities?”

Graduates will leave the Department with the vocational knowledge and skills needed to undertake a career in physical therapy and rehabilitation within state or private hospitals, health centres and health services.

You may help a person to finish university, but we cannot teach him/her what he/she does not want to know. Within the these words we as CIU family members offer to our students our aim to show them that in the human treatment the mind and thought are the first plan which must be practised.
