The College of Physical Therapy has adopted an integrated, community oriented approach and a combination
of a competency -based and evidence-based approach in its curriculum.
The integrated system involves correlation between
the theoretical and clinical aspects of both medical and physical therapy subjects. This makes the students realize the importance
and use of what they learn. Furthermore, the curriculum includes the development of not only the professional skills and attitudes
but the development of a well-rounded Christian as well.
Community based education is provided to the students through service oriented programs incorporated not
only in the Internship Program but in the Academic Program as well.
Competency-based and evidence based approaches are introduced through journal reports and discussions, research
assignments and discussions and objectively structured clinical or practical examinations. In this way, the San Juan de Dios
Educational Foundation, Inc., - College of Physical Therapy serves its purpose of providing the country with graduates competent
and efficient to fulfill the duties of a physical therapist.
