To start with, Purbanchal Educational Welfare Society, a Govt. Registered Society, marked its existence in the year 2003. The same was constituted by certain educationists and since then, the institution has strived to achieve academic excellence. Motivated by its Mission of providing “A Solution For A Brighter Tomorrow” and following its motto of imparting quality education, PEWS Guwahati has carve a niche of its own in the field of Paramedical and Nursing. The Society marched forward to establishits full fledged Paramedical College named “College of Physiotherapy and Medical Sciences” with initialaffiliation from SNDT Womens University, Mumbai in 2005 to 2010, then later from Gauhati University from 2011onwards. We are the pioneer to introduce Bachelor of Physiotherapy (BPT) in the entire North-East region and I am delighted to intimate that the tremendous response for the BPT (Bachelor of Physiotherapy) Course received from students all over North-East since its affiliation from Gauhati University in 2011has been a motivational factor for our College to thrive for excellence in education.
Continuing its academic pursuit, the society succeeded, to establish two other institutions in Nursing in the next consecutive year itself, i.e., CPMS College of Nursing conducting M.Sc.(N) from Srimanta Sankaradeva University of Health Sciences from the session 2018-19 and B.Sc.(N) courses with a permission earlier from SNDT Woman’s University, Mumbai and later from Srimanta Sankaradeva University of Health Sciences, and CPMS School of Nursing conducting GNM and ANM courses with affiliation from Board of Examinations, Directorate of Health Services, Govt. of Assam.
