Shree Swaminarayan Physiotherapy College is Beloved Swamiji’s brainchild. He envisioned building a college that would create true global citizens who are not only empowered by adequate knowledge but also carry with them, a sound value system. He always emphasised that the growth of a child had to include and stimulate intellectual, spiritual, emotional, mental and physical growth. At Shree Swaminarayan Physiotherapy College, this is what we strive to achieve.
We believe that education transforms lives and that transformed people can make difference in their societies and in the world by working for tolerance, understanding, justice, equality and compassion. Living and learning in a diverse community allows us to recognise our common humanity and promotes practical understanding. We believe that traditional Indian ideals, values and faith are a solid foundation for life and that among other things these ideals and values encourage a sense of responsibility for ourselves, for one another, and for the world.
Our teaching faculty and support staff are the edifice of this institution. Under their love, guidance and 24-hour care, our students blossom into individuals who become positive contributors to the world.
I extend my best wishes to all the students of the college.
