Dear Colleagues and Students
Greetings from Department of Physiotherapy, School of Allied Health Sciences, Manipal Academy of Higher Education. This year marks an important event in the timeline of our Department journey. It has been a stupendous journey for us for the past 25 years since its inception and is ever growing. Today, the Department of Physiotherapy at School of Allied Health Sciences has been widely acclaimed in the parlance of Physiotherapy academia and research not only in India but globally as well. This would not have been possible without the vision of the administrators and the past Head of the Departments who have passed on the professional mantle to me. The ever continuing professional contributions of the faculty members realises the mission and vision of the Department. The alumni / alumnae has brought fame to their alma mater.
It gives me immense pride to host the First Manipal International Physiotherapy Conference (MIPCON) to commemorate our Silver Jubilee Celebrations. The MIPCON 2017 aims at providing the platform for the physiotherapy professional community to share the knowledge and skills with the theme of Translating innovation and research to practice. We have stellar professionals as speakers invited for the scientific program from India and abroad. We have also free oral and poster presentations for faculty and students. We heartily welcome you to join us in MIPCON 2017 and be part of our professional journey.
