The attainment of clinical competence is the key outcome of physiotherapy teaching. Clinical
education forms the core components of the training of physiotherapy students.
We at IAMR value the fact that physiotherapy offers the opportunity to learn by doing. All our attempts are made to provide clinical experience through experts who actually practice on ground. Problem based learning and case-based approach to teaching are the highlight of our teaching learning process.
We also focus on peer learning in which we make a team on intellectually stimulating learners who value the challenge of learning together and make them work as a team to solve a case/a problem and acquire hands on experience with the guidance of practicing physiotherapist.
We also practice vygotskian principle of scaffold learning in which the member os syndicate are encourage to learn from each other. Our students work on recent developments and newer technologies as topic beyond syllabus through visit to hospitals and talk by guest speakers. We maintain a balance between students’ expectations and ground reality to make the students satisfied.
