Welcome to I.P.C introductory training program.
This program is designed to help new graduates to be ready to their new practical life.
We aim to graduate strong physical therapists with strong basic medical knowledge.
An advanced course will be offered later after the introductory course, this program will go into more details and will stress more on your practical skills.
