It has established aiming to universalize the rehabilitation health services through the skilled and experienced rehabilitation professionals such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, the government as well as the private sector will deliver rehabilitation health services to the doorsteps of the mass people of the country. In Bangladesh, the rehabilitation health professionals especially Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech & Language Therapists are very few to care for those with a disability due to non-communicable diseases or disorders. MCPHS started its journey by offering Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy affiliated to the Faculty of Medicine of University of Dhaka with the administrative approval of the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, the People’s Republic of Bangladesh.
