Mother Teresa Haryana Saket Council

The beginning

The Mother Teresa Haryana Saket Council is popular for its comprehensive services to the Physically Challenged persons of North Indian states since its very inception in 1957.

His Excellency, the Governor Haryana is the President of this Council and the Hon’ble Chief Minister Haryana is its Vice President –cum- Chairman.

With a view to improve the utilization of the available clinical material and infrastructure facilities at the two campuses of the Saket Council, one at Kalka Road, Chandimandir and second at Sector -1, Panchkula; the idea of establishing a Physiotherapy College in this Institute was conceived sometime in early 2006.  With a No Objection Certificate and other supports of Haryana Government and grant of affiliation by Pt. B.D. Sharma University of Health Sciences, Rohtak, our College of Physiotherapy was formally inaugurated on 4th December, 2008 by the Erstwhile Governor Haryana.  The first batch of 30 students of Bachelor of Physiotherapy (BPT) was admitted in academic session 2008-09, while 20 students of Master of Physiotherapy course in Orthopaedics (MPT Ortho) and Cardiopulmonary (MPT Cardio) were admitted in academic session 2009-10. 

All this was made possible because of the timely help, support and guidance of the Director Principal, Government Medical College and Hospital, Chandigarh where not only our undergraduate students are taught the paramedical and basic science subjects but the Postgraduate students also do their clinical training and Postgraduate dissertations there.

The College management is fully committed to create standard facilities of teaching & research comparable with international standards and one can expect that in due course of time Haryana Saket Council, Chandimandir will have a excellent College of Physiotherapy for the service of mankind.
