Message from the Director
It is a great honor for me to be a founding director of this prestigious institute of rehabilitation Sciences. RCRS play a leading role for the advancement and innovation in rehabilitation sciences since 2007 with the mission to have quality education for students and excellent care for patients. The Rehabilitation Sciences faculty has great achievements in the last decade. The concept of specialization in many areas of rehabilitation has been introduced. The rehabilitation scientists at RCRS contributed significantly by conducting many studies focused on musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardio pulmonary and speech language pathology issues. I see RCRS is a trendsetter in Pakistan by establishing a rehab house officer program, Post Graduate Trainee program, Certification in various specialties and established evidence based practice in its clinical Setups with a proper service structure. This provides opportunities for faculty development and promotions in academic and clinical setups. I recommend RCRS a place of Knowledge and Skills for students as well as for faculty members.
