Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (IPM&R) Khyber Medical University is the only institute in Public sector in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa which offers four years (Eight Semesters) graduation course in Physiotherapy.

Its existence can be correlated with the earthquake which occurred in October 2005 in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and some districts of Azad Jammu & Kashmir in Pakistan and lead to mass destruction of human lives. More than seven hundred of the earthquake victim became either paraplegic or quadriplegic. This increased demand of qualified physiotherapist in the province as well as in Azad Jammu & Kashmir.

Khyber Medical University took a bold step and established IPM&R to produce qualified physiotherapist in the province. The course was started on 12 January 2009 headed by pioneer physiotherapist of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
