Fellowship
Prakruti Sports Science and Physiotherapy Clinic was started by our Director, Dr. Harshada Rajadhyaksha with the view of integrating her varied knowledge of Fitness and Exercise Science, Diet and Nutrition, with her profession (Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Medicine) to assist patients and athletes make a full recovery after injury and actually become stronger in the process. Our holistic approach to health and rehabilitation has helped thousands of patients, athletes, and others to achieve their goals and remain pain free.

We wish to share our knowledge with young Physical Therapists, as we sincerely believe that Physical Therapists armed with the correct information on fitness and exercise can successfully bridge the gap between the Health Care and Fitness industry. We are concerned with the rise in lifestyle related diseases, childhood obesity and rising musculoskeletal injury concerns afflicting our sporting population and we would like to create a work force to tackle these issues in a scientific and safe manner.

We understand that after spending 4 1/2 years in a professional college earning a degree, young professionals must be in a hurry to apply their knowledge and earn some money. But, nothing can replace practical experience and continuous learning. Our Fellowship Program gives you an opportunity to "Earn While You (continue to) Learn" and is an ideal stepping stone to a fulfilling and lucrative career in your chosen profession.

Our courses are ideal for those who want to stay in India and start a clinical practice, and also for those who need to work for a year or two before applying abroad for a Master's Program.

We also offer great career opportunities for our successful candidates who wish to grow with our institution. After completing our fellowship program successfully, you will automatically fit the role of "Senior Therapist" with us (along with a suitable salary raise). After another successful year, you can be an "Associate Consultant" with the freedom to consult your own patients in our premises.
