About Course

Physical therapy, as a profession, dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, when the advances in health care made possible the survival of people affected by poliomyelitis and war injuries. Physical therapy has continued to evolve and to respond to the needs of society, with physical therapists now practicing in a variety of clinical settings with unprecedented levels of professional responsibility. Physical therapists are integral members of the primary care team and are involved in prevention of disability and promotion of positive health, and acting as consultants in restorative care. Physical therapist practice today is based on a well-developed body of scientific and clinical knowledge. Physical therapists also apply knowledge from the basic, behavior and social sciences. Physical Therapists are autonomous professionals, able to act as first contact practitioners accepting referrals as well as referring patients to other health care professionals. The graduate professional education environment is inherently conducive to physical therapist education for many reasons, including the community of scholars, the balance of academic and community life, and the sharing of ideas within a dynamic collegial environment. The moulding of physical therapists must be conducted in an environment that fosters the intellectual challenge and spirit of inquiry characteristic of the community of scholars and in an environment that supports excellence in professional practice. The institutional environment ensures the opportunity for physical therapy to thrive as both an academic and a professional discipline. In the optimum environment, physical therapy upholds and draws upon a tradition of scientific inquiry while contributing to the profession’s body of knowledge. The faculty demonstrates a pattern of activity that reflects a commitment to excel in meeting the expectations of the institution, the students, and the profession. The academic environment provides students with opportunities to learn from and be influenced by knowledge outside of, as well as within, physical therapy. In this environment, students become aware of multiple styles of thinking, diverse social concepts, values, and ethical behavior that will help prepare them for identifying, redefining, and fulfilling their responsibilities to society and the profession. Of major importance is emphasis on critical thinking, ethical practice, and provision of culturally competent service to meet the changing needs of society.

Dean's Message

 

DSI firmly believes that the learning experience extends far beyond the four walls of the classroom. Hence it has created one of the finest campuses, spread over a sprawling 28 acres of land on a picturesque and peaceful hillock. Students can imbibe the many facets a truly fulfilling learning experience in a very quiet atmosphere.

Physiotherapy has it roots in ancient times. The Chinese in around 2500 B.C. used massage as a treatment and Hippocrates described massage and hydrotherapy in 460 B.C. Since then the list of conditions that physiotherapy can have a part to play in their treatment has grown and grown. The modern practice of physiotherapy is thought to have come into being during the nineteenth century.

Physiotherapists are autonomous professionals, able to act as first contact practitioners accepting referrals as well as referring patients to other health care professionals.

Physiotherapists are key players in the health care system today. They help in restoring and improving movements, keeping patients healthy, fit and active thereby improving the quality of life. They also play an important role in avoiding surgery and long term use of medications.

Physiotherapists help their clients achieve the highest possible degree of physical activity, participation and quality of life, develop the knowledge and skills to formulate physio-theraputic diagnoses and design appropriate programs of prevention, treatment and exercise.

We at Dayananda Sagar College of Physiotherapy provide our students with extensive education, the best clinical expertise, and hands on approach and train the students for customized treatment plans designed to meet individual needs while ensuring that patient safety is our priority. These have been achieved with good infrastructure and our own two multi-specialty hospitals 665 bedded through which our students have been trained.

Physiotherapy profession has grown by leaps and bounds and will continue to grow substantially by developing scientific basis for its treatment.

DESCRIPTION OF GRADES

  • Table 1 shows the relationships among the grades, grade points and percentage of marks.
  • A candidate shall have to repeat all courses (both theory and associated laboratory/practical/clinical training) in which he/she obtains ‘E’ Grades conducted in the following or the next corresponding semester.
  • ‘E’ Grades are not counted in the calculation of the CGPA; however, these are counted in the calculation of the SGPA.
  • An ‘IC’ grade denotes incomplete performance in the course. A candidate will be eligible for an ‘IC’ grade provided he/she has met the attendance criterion. It may be awarded in case of absence on medical grounds or other special circumstances. The request is to be made to the chairman of the department through the faculty advisor.

  • Requests for IC-grade should be made at the earliest but not later than the last day of End semester examination..

Evaluation of Performance

  • The performance of a candidate will be evaluated in terms of the Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) which is the Grade Point Average for a semester, Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) which is the Grade Point Average for all the completed semesters.
  • The Earned Credits (EC) are defined as the sum of course credits for courses in which candidates have been awarded grades between O to P. (Table 1)
