Physical Therapy is a four-year course with the first two years dealing with General Education subjects, the third and fourth are professional years dealing with the core subjects of Physical Therapy and the fifth year is 10 months of clinical internship. Graduates will have the appropriate knowledge, skills, and attitude in planning, organizing, and directing Physical Therapy programs for the care of individuals whose ability to function is impaired or threatened by disease or injury.
Our program aims to develop well-rounded physical therapists that can practice as part of a large and varied team personnel that includes physicians and other professionals and assist health specialists and members of the Community.
Our Program focuses on advanced medical sciences, medical and surgical disabling conditions, and physical therapy treatment interventions.
Our faculty have strong and competent profiles as practitioners in different hospitals themselves. This gives our program a leg-up over others as they contribute their ongoing industry experience to the learnings of our Centralino physical therapists, making sure we give up-to-date and relevant knowledge and practices.
Our program has Level II status from the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation, an external body that checks the quality standards of universities. This quality is reflected in the passing rates of our students who are consistently above the national passing rate for the board exams.
Get others back on their feet or help them reach their physical goals. Physical therapists are movement experts that improve others’ quality of life via their treatments, patient care, and prescribed exercises. A career in sports, fitness, and healthcare are just some of your options after taking this program.
