Semester – 1
MPT-PMS 601: Physical Therapy in Musculoskeletal Conditions
This course provides the learner with the knowledge regarding the advanced assessment techniques, standard evaluation scales and principles of physical therapy management for musculoskeletal disorders. This course gives the student the additional skills needed to assess and treat complex musculoskeletal dysfunctions using physical therapy techniques. The student will gain knowledge and develop skills to use different soft tissue techniques, special orthopedic physical therapy approaches, taping and strapping techniques in the rehabilitation of various musculoskeletal disorders of upper extremity, lower extremity and spine. There will be emphasis placed on developing the knowledge and skills related to rehabilitation following different orthopedic surgeries.
MPT-SPR 602: Sports Rehabilitation
This course imparts knowledge regarding the principles of assessment and rehabilitation skills related to sports injuries. This course imparts the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to assess and manage sports injuries using appropriate physical therapy interventions. The course emphasizes on identification of commonly occurring sports injuries, its mechanisms, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention. This course also highlights the importance of nutrition and pharmacology in sports rehabilitation.
MPT-PSD 603: Physical Therapy in Systemic and Psychosomatic Disorders
This course emphasizes on theoretical, physiological and behavioral basis to manage common systemic and psycho-somatic conditions in physical therapy. This course includes case based learning incorporating standardized assessment tools and clinical decision making skills. Students must demonstrate efficient physical therapy examination and treatment abilities in a timely manner which is reflective of a contemporary rehabilitation practice.
MPT-ERG 604: Ergonomics
This course aims to introduce the application of the science of ergonomics. The course emphasizes on work related problems, work designing, industrial health, special care for children, aged and disabled persons by applying ergonomics principles.
MPT-PMK 605: Patho- Mechanics and Kinesiology
This course introduces the learner to apply the principles of biomechanics, musculoskeletal anatomy and basic physics in the clinical system. The learner will develop core knowledge, skills and attitudes needed in the examination of various soft and hard tissues, analysis of normal and abnormal movements, physics of human movements.
MPT-EPN 606: Exercise Physiology and Nutrition
This course aims at the learner to integrate the concepts of exercise physiology, nutrition and human energy expenditure for various activity levels. This course imparts the core knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to assess the systems of energy delivery and its utilization in different populations. Students further emphasis on the physical and physiological adaptations for various exercise training methods. With the integration of the information and knowledge gained from the course work students learn how to apply an exercise program for the special population.
Semester – 2
MPT-PND 607: Physical Therapy in Neurological Disorders
This course offers opportunities for learners to develop and practice advanced therapeutic principles associated with rehabilitation of neurological disorders. This course introduces the student to the core knowledge and skills needed to treat neurology related disabilities emphasizing on the analysis of clinical findings, to design and implement advanced intervention programs for patients with increasingly complex problems.
MPT-PPD 608: Physical Therapy in Pediatric Disorders
This course will cover a wide range of topics related to the physical therapy practice in pediatrics. The course study emphasizes on developmental disabilities, different assessment methods, conservative physical therapy methods and neuro developmental therapies related to pediatric disabilities. This course gives the student a chance to develop physical therapy skills needed to assess and treat pediatric dysfunctions.
MPT-PCR 611: Physical Therapy in Cardiovascular & Respiratory Conditions
This course aims at improving the knowledge and understanding of the students to learn and apply evidence-based practice in the management of individuals with cardiopulmonary diseases. Further emphasis is placed on physical therapy examination, diagnosis, development of a physical therapy plan of care and documentation to enhance the clinical practice. With the integration of the information and knowledge gained from the course work, students learn how to apply assessment and physical therapy treatment approaches using different techniques through case-based learning. This course gives the student the additional opportunities to practice in the community to provide cardiorespiratory fitness training, disability evaluation and counseling for the patients.
MS-RM 609: Research Methodology
The course focuses on basic principles of research and the basic ethical and legal principles pertaining to the research. Opportunities will be provided to develop an inquisitive attitude on the part of the trainee by active participation in clinical or laboratory research, research seminars and presentations.
MS-BS 610: Biostatistics
The course introduces concepts and methods of descriptive and inferential statistics, with applications. Topics include qualitative and quantitative data, characteristics, sources and presentation, comparison of means and proportions, sampling techniques, hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, parametric and nonparametric tests, linear regression and correlation critical interpretation of research results and the use of computers for data processing and statistical analysis is also practiced.
Semester – 3
MPT-CLR 612: Clinical Rotations
The students will undergo clinical rotation for a period of 4 weeks in specialties of musculoskeletal & sports, neurological, cardio- respiratory and systemic disorders rehabilitation units which will be integrated to concentrate the clinical training of Physical therapy in this semester. The student will be familiarized with the daily routine of clinical duties in each of the above units and will be guided to evaluate, diagnose, plan and execute Physical therapy treatment protocols to the clients who are indicated. They will be able to observe their supervisors participating in patient care consultations. Students will start data collection as per the research protocol designed and approved in the earlier semester.
Semester – 4
MPT-THS 613: Thesis
In this course students will continue their research studies. The data collected as part of their research study will be entered and analyzed using the statistical software SPSS version 20 data will be interpreted and discussed by the supervisory faculty. Before the end of the course the student has to submit a thesis and defend the work in the viva. The student will also prepare and submit a publishable article.
Semester 3 and 4 are integrated hence clinical rotations and thesis activity occurs simultaneously throughout the year. However, the grades and GPA of each course i.e., MPT-CLR 612 and MPT-THS 613 shall be marked separately for the calculation on CGPA for the second year for 2019 and 2020 cohort.
