To Fellow Physiotherapists,

USA processing for Indian Physical Therapist have become near impossible because of the deficiencies in General Education. When we apply for credentialing, the PT Credentialing board in USA gives the report as deficient in General Education and Professional Education is substantially equivalent.

In Brief:
General Education – DEFICIENT
Professional Education- SUBSTANTIALLY EQUIVALENT
( Substantially equivalent means an individual has satisfied or exceeded the minimum number of credits required for a United States baccalaureate degree of Physical Therapy.)

Therefore the viable solution for those Indian Physical Therapist who aspire to work in USA would be to make up the deficiency in General Education, in two ways:

( I ) For one you can get general credits in online programs- CLEP (College-Level Examination Program). This will sound easy than it is. Simply enroll, pay the fees and get the credits.
Check this out.

1. If you are interested to do the online course in a very small University, they will charge you approximately $65 for a Basic Physical Geography and $235 for 5 credits in Math. Visit [link] for more details.

2. If you are interested to do your credits in a well-known University, for example., University of Phoenix- which is the largest accredited private university in North America and the World’s largest Online University, you will be charged $494 for 3 credits. Each online class lasts five or six weeks. Visit [link] for more details.

3. At some colleges, you may be able to apply for your CLEP credit to the college’s core curriculum requirements. For example., all students may be required to take at least 6 hours of Humanities, 6 hours of English, 3 hours of Mathematics, 6 hours of Natural Science and 6 hours of Social Science, with no particular subjects in these disciplines specified. In these instances, CLEP credit may be given as “6 hrs- English Credit” or “3 hrs- Math Credit”, without specifying for which English or Mathematics courses credit has been awarded. It costs approximately $60 for a credit. Visit [link] for more details.

4. You can also get your credits in Baker College, which charges $175 per credit. Visit [link] for more details.

5. The University of Washington also gives you a very good online course support for which we have to pay $1000 for Humanities-Philosophy with 5 credits, that will take 10 weeks. Within this period, you will have to do 9 assignments and 2 examinations. For 5 credits in Mathematics, they will charge $1000. You will have to give 5 examination for this. Visit [link] for more details.


IMPORT NOTE: THE COLLEGE- LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM HAS A POLICY THAT CANDIDATES MAY NOT REPEAT A CLEP EXAM OF THE SAME TITLE WITHIN SIX MONTHS. SCORES OF THE EXAMS REPEATED EARLIER THAN SIX MONTHS WILL BE CANCELED AND TEST FEES FORFEITED. FURTHER, THERE IS NO CLEP CENTRE IN INDIA. YOU WOULD NEED TO GO TO PHILIPPINES OR GUAM AND TAKE EACH COURSE TAKEN INDIVIDUALLY. LAB CREDITS IN PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY CANNOT BE OBTAINED BY CLEP COURSE.

( II ) Understanding the US procedures for Physical Therapy and knowing the status of Indian Physical Therapist, HCMI- a Singapore based company, have come up with a practical solution- DEFICIENCY MAKE-UP PROGRAM (DMP). The DMP program, a 6 month course, is the viable solution for making up general education deficiencies within India. Courses are conducted in BISHOP HEBER COLLEGE, TRICHY for $2,500 and $3000 in Chennai ( enrollment going on for Batch 1 at Loyola and Stella Maris Colleges) for more than 50 credits. If you refer a candidate, who would join DMP program, you will also be awarded a referral bonus of $100.

So, the choice is yours now, because you may be the right person to decide your career by evaluating the above mentioned two ways.

I would like to say that though you would have to spare or spend 6 months for DMP program it will be most effective and worthwhile. If you want any further clarifications, please feel free to write.


Kind regards,


J. SURESH BABU, BPT, MIGPTA

first of all why you need DMP program? to enter other states, and why you need to enter other states? because no more jobs in Michigan and new york......is that true? a big No. but that's what HCMII advocating to all. its a perfect business tactics by them. no complaints about that.. every one working for thier business its their way of doing it. some may benefit from that.

but after doing all , i mean whatever they , still there is no guarantee on the Job because even they have no " absolute control over that".

then why we need to spend so much on "DMP" and try looking for next batch to attend DMP people so that HCMII will file your visa and that's decided by computer lottery. if we are not selected by computer, not only all our efforts gone but also huge money( when its by Indian Rs) .money invested for nothing.

instead look for employers from Michigan and New york and get your visa filed and there is no dearth of opportunity in those two states.

okey if you still want to improve your general credits study from any university in India and earn some certificates in the general subjects( that's commonly our +2 subjects).

luckily IGNOU offers this type of course exclusively for improving general credits. enquire and do that its juts 3,500.00 Rs .

I dont wont to sound insensative to the money sitution but if your goal is to come to US just do the 6 month program. Just think about how long it will take to make that $3000. One month in US. So this program is not a bed idea at all. Yes it it costly but your other options are not much better so just do what ever you have to. Even if you enroll in US colleges, 50 credit will cost you lot more then 3000.00. SO in my openion it is a good thing and you should do it. Also if you are coming to US dont just think about NY and Mic. why limit your self? $$ in NY and Mic. are lower then other states. Good luck to all of you.

the programm is called as associate studentship javid.

and don't compare US education with this DMP programm. there are number of universities in india , if approched will offer the same DMP program for indian cost. this is absolutely business plan.

and why some body have to go for DMP just its cheaper than USA.

if you compare it with USA , then how about comparing IGNOU program which is 32 credits for just 3500.Rs...with that of HCMII DMP.
