kakhaber chelidze.jpgThe Faculty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) was established in 2007 by decision of the Academic Board of Tbilisi State Medical University (TSMU).

The Faculty of PM&R is the first and still only provider of full specter (Bachelor, Master and Doctoral Level) of higher education in Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine in Georgia.

The past 5 years were the years of formation and stabilization. We still don’t have enough experience, but we have firm intention to be leader in this scope of activity. We have sufficient strength for that! We are sure, that our most up-to-date programs, skilled and motivated staff are a firm guarantee of future outstanding achievements in career of our graduates.

Nowadays we've reached some level, but we keep in mind famous quote of Nelson Mandela: ’’After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills left to climb”. 

Few words about our webpage!

Health care is undergoing great changes both at global and at national levels. There are increasing expectations for medical care from common public, which reflect the philosophical debate about human rights and responsibilities across society, particularly in relation with the full involvement of people with disabilities.Medical practice is continually evolving, with raising clinical standards and the need for excellence throughout the continuous professional development, revalidation and enhancement of specialist training. As the need for greater competency increases, it is important for PRM to redefine its essence, what can it offer and which standards of training should be demanded from entrants into the specialty.

This web aims to respond to these requirements.


Yours truly,
Professor Kakhaber Chelidze MD. PhD.
