CBC Health Services Launches Scholarship Program in Physiotherapy, Community Based Rehabilitation, Occupational Therapy
A scholarship program to enable candidates to effectively participate in the training of Physiotherapy (PT), Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) and Occupational therapy (OT) has been launched by the CBC Health Services with funding from the AFAS foundation. The scholarship committee for the Rehabilitation for Inclusion Project held a meeting at the CBCHS Resource Center of Excellence, Mvan-Yde on July 26, 2021, to establish modalities for the selection of candidates.
Chairing the meeting, the Director of CBC Health Services (DHS), Prof. Tih Pius Muffih stated that it was very good that all the members of the scholarship committee were present physically and by zoom to discuss the selection requirements for candidates that will benefit from the scholarship. The Director hailed the technical and financial partners – AFAS Foundation and Liliane foundation for making funds available to prepare candidates in CBR, PT as well as OT.
The Program Manager of the CBCHS-EDID program, Mrs. Agho Glory explained that partial scholarships are awarded to candidates to enable them to effectively take part in the various training programs. She said the scholarships are meant for those who will be committed in serving the CBCHS and partner organizations after they leave school to go to the community and provide quality services to children with disabilities. “Those who show this commitment and meet the entry criteria will be considered for the scholarship,” she emphasized.
Modalities for Selection
- Must have passed the entrance examination into the respective training school.
- Must be able to pay the school fees balance after the scholarship has been awarded.
The four-year training in Physiotherapy at the Bachelor degree level will be offered by the Baptist Institute of Health Sciences (BIHS) Mbingo while the one-year course on CBR Physiotherapy will be offered at the Baptist Training School for Health Personnel (BTSHP) Banso.
