From the Instructor -
Today, mankind has made unprecedented changes on the face of the earth and has turned every obstacle in the process into a new milestone.
Being a Physiotherapist, I have been actively engaged at all levels for professional growth.
During my formal training in post-graduation, I developed a strong affinity towards sharing and learning more about Physiotherapy and my fascination with the intricacies of curriculum and lack of streamlining, it grew even more intense. I was deeply moved and in some way frightened by the prospect of imagining myself in the shoes of PTs who weren’t helped to be thorough with their applications. But simultaneously I felt myself empowered by the knowledge and skills that I was willing to share to make these individuals more efficient. My jobs in past offered the field of clinical practice with a perfect blend of impregnable and experimental work.
My journey to learning took a geometric progression under the influence of editing experience with a renowned Physiotherapy Magazine into my badge. I have been an altruistic person from childhood so my concern towards the Physiotherapy Community at large was first concern. The more I realized the wretched scenario, the greater I empathized with the immense sufferings PTs endured because of lack of qualified teachers. (For PTs who have good teachers are blessed ones)
Many people think Physiotherapy in India is something to be thwarted if possible. But I believe that it holds a promising future if standardization of PT education is made by the government. I was particularly interested in running online courses as it can give me an opportunity to profoundly influence PTs education. Soon I realized that there is something called Udemy Courses for it.
I understand the key to sustained progress in this age of internet and free access to information is to make society at large avail with the open access articles. There are many primary sources of archives, manuscripts and collections often hindered by private ownership which permits either on a highly selective basis or not at all. Based on these facts I support dissemination of high quality researches and through online courses I will try and provide updated information which will include high quality scientific publications.
