distant education is degrading our profession badly . it is the duty of all P.T. s to come forward n stop this.
it will neither benefit the students who undergo distant education nor the the P.T. s who teach at such institutes. thanks

I really don't understand how a physiotherapist who is passing out through distance education offered by some Indian Universities completes the internship whithout which he/she will become incompetent in handling the patients in the respective field and in this way the image of the Physiotherapist among the patients will be destoyed gradually.

DASHRATH says:

Distance education courses can destroy our image in front of patient, because through distance education student can never know doctor-patient relationship.

Distance education is very bad for our profession. In our profession thr is only practical work.Someone can't at all be a physiotherapist only by theoritical part. I m unable to understand that how a physiotherapist by distance can treat the patients.This is really very bad.

ha ha its very funny, something like learning swimming through post. is nt it. we should eradicate all these nonsense

ajay says:

14 Dec : 01:19 am

it is well known that if any one learn swimming through postal they will drown, at present most of our clients are well aware of physiotherapy. they even them self chuck qualified but not qualitated physios who used to manage with passive movements insted of real physiotherapy aproch. then nothing to worry. clients easly identify and reject with out any of our effort. so let them study, swim and drown we can enjoy it

suchir says:

hey guys,

"it is well known that if any one learn swimming through postal they will drown, at present most of our clients are well aware of physiotherapy. they even them self chuck qualified but not qualitated physios who used to manage with passive movements insted of real physiotherapy aproch. then nothing to worry. clients easly identify and reject with out any of our effort. so let them study, swim and drown we can enjoy it"

as quoted by ajay
i think we all r following this view that let them do whatever they want , they wud be identified as havin no knowledge n wud be "drowned" so we can close our eyes , well! with no offence to nyone , doesn't that sound like the same situation as if cat is approaching n pigeon closes his eyes as if nothing is there.

i think danger is wide n clear. These days it is a well known fact that if sm1 goes fr job then first n foremost thing employer is interested to know is " HOW MUCH SAARY YOU WANT" N IN SUCH SITUATIONS, EXCEPT GUD HOSPITALS , ALL OTHERS WUD BE HAPPY TO TAKE THESE GUYS { DROWNED ONES}. SO QUESTION IS WHO IS GUD

AGAIN IN MY 1/2 YEAR OF PRACTICE N TRAINING DURING COLLEGE DAYS I HAVE CLEARLY SEEN THAT IN INDIA NYBODY HAVIN GUD COMMUNICATION SKILLS CAN EASILY SAIL THROUGH [ EVEN I HAVE TO RELY AT TIMES WHEN NOT ABLE TO GET RESULT, PRIVATE CLINICS KI YEHI STORY HAI]
SECOND ASPECT , STUDENTS WHO R COMING OUT OF REGULAR COLLEGES , R THEY COMPETENT ENOUGH. I THINK EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT THESE DAYS AT EVERY NOOK N CORNER THERE R COLLEGES WITH NO CONTROL ON QUALITY. THEY R WORSE THAN EVEN QUACKS.

THIRD ASPECT , WE FOLLOW ELECTROTHERAPY TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT EVEN THOSE WITH KNOWLEDGE TO MAKE IT HAPPEN LOOSE INTEREST LATER ON.
OUR SENIOR THERAPISTS WHO R NOW WORN OUT N HAVE LOST NY WILLPOWER N SELF ESTEEM DUE TO DAYY TO DAY ONSALUGHT BY ORTHOS N EVEN NURSES IN VARIOUS HOSPITALS.

IF ANYBODY DISAGREES WITH ME THEN IAM VERY HAPPY AS HE/SHE WUD BE THE ONE WHO HAS FOUGHT WELL N HAS GOT ACCLAIM , N MORE IS THE NO. OF THERAPISTS WHO DISAGREE WITH ME THE MORE HAPPY IAM. BUT STILL IF SM1 LOOKS AT A LARGER PICTURE THEN I HAVE JUST WRITTEN THE FACT.

ITS HIGH TIME THAT WE MUST HAVE A STRONG NATIONAL COUNCIL N EVERY STATE HAVIN REGIONAL COUNCIL WORKIN UNDER NATIONAL ONE WITH UNIFORM RULES N UNITED TO UPLIFT THE PROFESSION FRM RAGS.

I TELL U WE NEED A POLICY CHANGE . WE NEED TO ASK OURSELVES THAT WY OUR PROFESSION IS SO GUD OUTSIDE N NOT HERE. THATS BCOZ GENEREAL PUBLIC IS MADE AWARE OF KEEPIN IN GUD HEALTH WITH REGULAR EXERCISE . ECONOMIC SURVEYS HAVE MADE IT VERY CLEAR TO TO INDUSTRIES, INSURANCE COMPANIES , NGO's THAT IF THEY REIMBURSE FOR SUCH TREATMENT [ ALTERNATIVE THERAPY] THEN THEY CAN SAVE A LOT OF TAX PAYERS MONEY.
SO FINALLY IT IS DOWN TO POLICIES

I WOULD SERIOUSLY LIKE TO HEAR FROM FELLOW PHYSIOS ABT MY VIEWS . I DONT LIKE TO WRITE MUCH , JUST THAT I CUDN'T STOP MYSELF TODAY. I DONT PROMISE THAT I WUD REPLY , ALL DEPENDS ON MY MOOD.
MY ID IS [email]

hi guys!
good to see the voting pattern .iam in the field for about 10 years . what i found is that most of us are not equiped ourselves to challenge the fellow professional in the health industry.
i sincearly thank to you guys toward s the concern for the profession . i agree that we require a council . most unfortunate thing is that we have been exploited by many people such as doctors , managements of hospitals, and private colleges .they all benifitted now they disregard our profession . for instance they doctor will take money and teach you will not offer you the oppurtunity in his setting .
second thing with regards to the quality honestly tell me how many of you have studied the college which has the teaching hospital background , 1; 5 ratio of the student and teaching beds, like wise 1;10 students teachers ratio
how many places it is followed? . these all t5hings will st right once all of us unit togather and fight for the council
dont loose hope good future is there for us

Robin says:

15 Dec : 04:33 am

good to hear those views, mates ! yes, i too am of the view of stoppin these sort of education for physical therapy( great comparison, subbin..! ) but i feel we should just stop short of makin those who have opted fr these courses feel silly and incompetent..we should better let them do their talkin with their deeds ! for sure this mode is not a great way to teach this profession..but after hearing from gys like swapnil who says to have practised a lot more than a lot of regular gys might have done during their college days or might have studied in colleges with less exposure(..as vijyakumar has pointed out)...i feel we should stop short of any personal remrks towards such therapists ! we should better concentrate our ire towrds such courses being given out..!

subinst says:

17 Dec : 09:25 am

im extremely happy tu see the voting guys lets try our level best to stop this kinda non sense they say they will giv yu degree if we giv more money with out even attnding the class .lets improve our quality of work like western countries and upgrade our profession CPD should be made compulsory and mandatory for all best of luk guys

sabitharaj says:

18 Dec : 08:51 pm

hai all my pt friends good to see voting pattern how funny it is getting degree through distance education they dont know how difficult to practice with out practical exposure those who how are joining in this distance education pt programme diffinately they are spoiling there life there won so please dont spoile your life .All the best!

prasanth says:

27 Dec : 04:45 am

hai friends our proffession is not like ordinary degree courses.it requires clinical exposure rather than byhearting books.
so how can anybody complete course without clinical focus.

DR.MDGHOUSE says:

07 Mar : 07:00 am

physiotherapy is not a joke or a lab tech. work. we are the docter's .what the knowlege will get to the distance degree .it i waste degree.it a duty ofsenoir DR.to stop this .

maddy says:

17 Mar : 04:21 am

in our courses we have to work out a lot these distance education will reduces the status of our professional . while we do our project in several aspects with our college guides .as to distance education it does'nt give the efforts we to guard our satus as to get our standards of knowledge in higher levels

Jacobson says:

31 Mar : 01:52 pm

It's annoying that PT courses are offered through distance education. Even though PT Council is a solution, awareness among the general public about PT courses, which require both theoretical and practical classes for atleast 4 years, is necessary

parmveerkaushal says:

27 May : 12:55 pm

i like all comlement against distance education for pt.we have to do some thing for it.
for it i think so , first we need to make student union association in each state and combination of all union to make one at centre level to solve so many problem.reply me if u are with me.

POOSAIPANDIAN says:

29 May : 01:28 am

There is no word to say our expressions when we find the advertisements in news papers regarding DISTANCE EDUCATION PHYSIOTHERAPY COURSES. Really useless, cruel and nonsense activity on Healthy education in INDIA.

dantapally goutam reddy says:

31 May : 04:33 am

Hi friends,
I think it is not correct because physiotherapy is a professional course.It requires regular classes plus good practical exposure,,,i mean 'learn by practice' method.

Betty says:

13 Jun : 12:51 pm

Well,the situation is pretty bad in India,ideally the distance education programmes should have a practical exposure system as well,i am not aware if that is the case,otherwise d e p are basically an asset for working individuals or rather i would say those ppl should not be called Physiotherapists/but should be called Certified PT Aide/or a diploma in PT as PTASSISTANT.Sowe raelly need to regulate our profesion in INdia as so many OT'S area also working as PT's and legitimate degree holders are left high n dry, which is unfair!

arun_samir28 says:

22 Jul : 12:42 am

This kind of distance physiotherapy course may lead to detrioration of physiotherapist's skill and give rise to ill qualified PTs.

bharat says:

17 Nov : 12:49 am

yup ,its very rightly said by my dear frnds dat it wil defame the profession. it wil encourage the quacks .day is nt far away wen v will b called as malishwala.heee
so lets unite 2gether 2 stop all dis

alok jha says:

21 Nov : 11:33 pm

what i have heard is that DEC has given its approval to distance education courses.If govt of india does not have problems,why should we.If the courses r recognised and d students r getting jobs after getting a degree in distance education,i personally feel that there is no problem in doing BPT,MPT through distance education.there r several colleges in india that r conducting physiotherapy programmes but they advice their students 2 sit at home and recieve their degrees.so what 2 do about those colleges?dont you think they r spoiling our proffession. Still we physios do not have a council.what about that?

sakshi says:

31 Dec : 12:55 am

i think there is no problem in distance education y u all guys taking this in a wrong sense i dont know i think there is no problem in this type of education after all physiotherapy needs more attention no one know about our field as education area increases i thin it will be a better step towards our council matter. i dont know wat steps r taking about our council. but we have to work so hard for that

sakshi says:

31 Dec : 01:02 am

for our council untill n unless v r nt giong to unite nothing will b happen if u a regular student or any one w/o council v all r a jholachap dr. so better 2 arguing on this matter v have to think about our council otherwise or hardwork of 41/2 yrs will b useless if u think i m right plz reply me

anitha says:

22 Jan : 08:49 pm

samarth says:

04 Feb : 09:33 am

divin says:

09 Feb : 09:51 pm

i am shocked to hear tat distance education is being offered for physiotherapy, honestly speaking i never knew abt it.. i think this will put r profession in a bad state.. all phsios should join hands in stopping this...

Nicky says:

29 Feb : 08:51 pm

He y frnds....why r u all so annoyed of dist.edu.physios.............i knw our work is more on practicals but those ppl can learn the pracs during internship training period......now days the attendants in various hospitals r giving electro treatments to patients.........then why not these degree ppl let it b distant/regular..........wat matters is KNOWLEDGE....................................THINK ABT IT N STOP ARGUING IN THESE TYPE OF SILLY MATTERS N WASTE UR TIME N ENERGY.

samarth says:

sambit says:

01 Jul : 05:55 am

today every course is available as a distance education option, right frm MBA to graduation so why not mpt and bpt so long as u learn something proper. These courses can be done as a part time with quite less fees.

Petric Rodger says:

25 Jul : 02:32 am

No, the distance education courses in Physiotherapy offered by some Indian Universities not be made to discontinue because the students who are curious about this course, they can get education in India.

Not everyone can afford a college education or can have easy access 2 a good quality of education everywhere...So if they get some benefits from ditance education why cann't they be allowed to have it? It's totally an individual's choice.
Ya there are few limitations and disadvantages ,but that is everywhere now a days,in every field!

PS: It's a Personal Choice all together:)

Dr Dyn Parry says:

20 Feb : 12:42 pm

I think it is acceptable to only have distance education courses for post professional development such as Masters level /PgDip, and also at Bachelors level for registered and practicing physios who entered the profession with a diploma as long as the diploma is recognised by the professional body and regulatory council of our profession.
