Hi, 

I am studying my masters in physiotherapy from India (RGUHS) and I'd like to know how many credits (professional and general approx.) will I get after applying for credential evaluation post MPT

Thanks in advance

hi robin,

thanx for posting a reply,I know that for sure that my general credits wont be altered post-MPT.What i meant to ask was how many credits will i get post MPT (approx) so that i have an idea about,how many i have to cover up?One more information i wud like to get is that do we need to apply for H1b or any other visa & does that H1b follow the same cycle as for the techies i.e. gets applied in march and is valid from october.

thnx

I'm not sure how much professional credits U might get, but U may use a link in this discussion topic we had earlier [link] where u can understand how credits are calculated and then may be u can use u'r MPT syllabus and calculate a possible score. But then is our professional credits found wanting in any states of US ? And i dont think U might have to take any supplementary courses in PT to cover up any professional credits.
 Ofcourse one needs to apply for a work visa (H1B) to move from here to US for a work unless u have been already sponsored for a family visa. For H1B, u need to keep the papers ready  with a sponsor in hand by february or march so that he may file by April.

Garry..as U might be knowing it mostly will depend upon u'r syllabus/coursework U w'ld be submitting for the evaluation. I remember vaguely reading somewhere that usually one semester equals to around 16 credits at an average for MPT. I hope someone who already had done the evaluation post MPT might help u with some information.

That would be more easy, but incase if u dint find some response, u may take a rough calculation u'rself, Garry. A semester credit hour must include at a minimum: 15 hours of lecture, or 30 hours of laboratory, or 48 hours of clinical education.

Ah.. we cant really rely 100% on any recruiters as we never know wether they would go ahead and file for U, even if they promise to. But U would look too pretty for any recruiter since u already have U'r hubby right over there so that they would have to spend less on U'r accommodation and other related expenses once they succed in bringing u over there, also since u might have the NPTE cleared all by U'rself.
     My take on the matter wil be like..U finish the Masters, take the credential evaluation then apply for the state board license and take the NPTE. With these ready, any hospital woudl be ready to file for U, if not, every recruiter wil be more than happy to file for U, Garry.
     I also think U should look out for any options if possible to change u'r visa status once u have the professional requirements ready if u r already there not on a visiting visa( I'm not sure wether that is a plan which wil workout, but stil u may like to look at that option too.) There are many famous recruiting companies, dont worry about it, even on our site there had been quite few links on the forums. And may be with NPTE cleared and the state board license ready, U may be able to bargain u'r remuneration too with recuiters..he he..!
