Welcome to CMUL Physical Therapy Alumni Website

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the CMUL Physical Therapy Alumni USA Inc., (CMULPTUSA). The CMULPTUSA, is the embodiment of Physical Therapy graduates of the CMUL (College of Medicine, University of Lagos) currently residing and practicing in the United States of America. As PT Alumni of the CMUL, we share in the principles of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) that every individual is entitled to the highest possible standard of culturally appropriate health care provided in an atmosphere of trust and respect for human dignity and determined by sound clinical reasoning and scientific evidence.
Physical Therapy is a health care profession which involves evaluation of patients through the administration of physical tests to determine the presence and/or extent of an injury prior to the use of physical modalities for preventive and therapeutic purposes. Physical Therapy is concerned with curative and rehabilitative services by the use of physical agents, modalities, therapeutic exercise, etc.

On this website, we provide information about the Physical Therapy profession and education in Nigeria. Such information include the history, physical therapy education programs, the practice of physiotherapy in Nigeria including regulating laws and our regulating Body. This website will also introduce you to members of the CMULPTUSA Executive Council and some other colleagues here in the USA, and around the world.

For our fellow USA Alumni colleagues, this new dynamic website offers various interactive forum including the PhysioBlogs, PhysioNewsletters, PhotoNews and Photo Galleries, Chatrooms and Discussion forums, Online Chat, Job Postings, etc. We encourage Alumni members to take advantage of many features of this website by creating a user account.
