Welcome to KMCH College of Physiotherapy, Healthcare is today seeing exponential growth. The practice of medicine cannot be limited to just “curing” the disease but demands the holistic restoration of the patient to their maximum functional potential. This requires the input of various personnel who constitute a healthcare team. A physiotherapist is a very important person in this team, and their role is pivotal in hastening recovery, reducing the hospital stay and returning the patients to their full functional status. The applications of technology in medicine is increasing and contributing to more effective therapy protocols. KMCH college of Physiotherapy has been at the forefront of training physiotherapists who are able to meet the demands of this profession in various scenarios across the globe.

At KMCH we believe that education should be holistic. We expect our students to be interactive and not passive learners. We expect you to employ critical and creative thinking skills to solve problems; and pose questions, examine possibilities, and apply skills to find solutions. Developing a professional attitude right from the first year is imperative to grow into a skilled and respected healthcare professional at the end of the course, and this professional attitude needs to be displayed in the way you dress, talk and carry yourself at all times.

We expect the parents to regularly interact with us and join hands with us in ensuring that every student who completes their education at KMCH will be a respected and competent professional.
