Background - Dhaka College of Physiotherapy

Contribute to the building of a healthy and prosperous nation by bringing physiotherapy and rehabilitation health services to the doorsteps of the people by building skilled physiotherapy physicians of international standard and playing a special role in achieving the goals of the SDGs. Although the world is rich in physiotherapy treatment, Bangladesh was lagging behind. But the incidence of disease and the number of patients is increasing at a geometric rate. People in the country are still often deprived of proper treatment for related diseases including arthritis, pain and paralysis. Hopefully, world class physiotherapy treatment is being done in the country now. Dhaka College of Physiotherapy, the first higher education institution in the field of physiotherapy education in the country, has been established at the college level on individual initiative to build skilled human resources in this sector. In the post-liberation period, undergraduate courses in physiotherapy were introduced along with physiotherapy department and postgraduate orthopedics courses for the treatment and rehabilitation of war wounded freedom fighters.

But even though medical and education systems were introduced for the development of physiotherapy, it was stopped at one stage. The redevelopment of education has begun over the past two decades. But then at the institute level. Bachelor’s and Master’s degree activities are being conducted under Dhaka University. But no physiotherapy college has been established in the country. So we have established a physiotherapy college. At present, the academic activities of this college have started with the admission of students from the 2020-2021 academic year.
