Service as Reviewer Indian journal of physical therapy and research Current respiratory medicine reviews
I believe my role, as a university Assistant professor, is to facilitate learners in their achievement of the goals they have set in their education as physiotherapist. I try to keep myself updated with the latest developments in the courses of cardiopulmonary physiotherapy. My responsibility is to engage the students to participate in learning and clinical skills in cardiopulmonary sciences.
