Abstract: Background: The geriatric rehabilitation is a developing field in community physiotherapy. The goal of geriatric rehabilitation is to restore independence and as much physical and mental function. A lot of undergraduate students are unaware of treatments methods. As the students interaction with senior patients is comparatively less , they should have a good and correct attitude. Objectives: To investigate the undergraduate students knowledge and attitude regarding geriatric rehabilitation. Materials and methodology: A cross-sectional study was conducted at Krishna College of physiotherapy, KIMSDU, Karad. A total of 148 undergraduate physiotherapy students were included by random sampling. Questionnaire on knowledge and attitude on geriatric rehabilitation were circulated via Google forms and the results were collected. Result: This study results show that the knowledge in students is fair and attitude is poor. Conclusion: This study shows that undergraduate physiotherapy students have fairly good knowledge but attitude seemed to be poor, hence a more enthusiastic approach is expected.
