BACHELOR OF PHYSIOTHERAPY
Living in a city has its perks, but the sedentary lifestyle often results in rising complaints of spinal, neck and other bodily aches. Physiotherapy is the solution to this problem. Till a couple of decades ago, physiotherapy education could only be availed of in the form of diplomas or certification courses, which the four-and-a-half-year long comprehensive bachelor in physiotherapy (BPT) degree is slowly phasing out. The course prepares students with fundamental knowledge of the human anatomy and intricacies of the bones, muscles and nerves.
CAREER PROSPECTS Prospects for a physiotherapist are diverse since the practice not only supplements most other medical fields, but can also stand on its own. They may work at clinics, special schools, senior citizen homes and multinational companies. Salaries range from `5,000 to `80,000 per month.
