Job Prospectus


With a study showing that the required number of physiotherapists is one for every 10,000 persons, job opportunities are a simple calculation, given the population of India. In western countries too, there is a great demand for physiotherapists. Opportunities exist in rehabilitation departments of government and private hospitals, medical rehabilitation centers, health institutions and defence medical centers.

With the demand for physiotherapists increasing every day, one may also opt for private practice. The difference in monetary returns for employed professionals and private practitioners is phenomenal. The difference also is that one needs to make a lot of investment in terms of space, some basic equipment and so on. The real satisfaction or returns lie in participating and helping a fellow human being. Teaching is yet another option open to those who have specialised in physiotherapy.
