Message from Dean
It is a great honor for me to be the first dean of this prestigious faculty. In the last decade, RCRAHS had great achievements and significant contributions to the standardization and quality both in academics and clinical practice. RCRAHS the pioneer institute for few innovative degree programs in the rehabilitation disciplines including doctor of physical therapy (DPT), MS in Speech-language pathology (SLP), post-professional DPT, and certifications/Residencies in many rehab specialties. The institute has a leading role in the rehabilitation and allied health sciences and offers many degree programs from under grade level to Doctoral level programs. If you plan to have a degree in rehab and allied health sciences I believe RCRAHS is the best place to have quality and value-based education. We warmly welcome you to learn in a conducive environment from our highly qualified faculty at Riphah.
