The College of Physical Therapy celebrates another milestone as it opens its Physical Therapy (PT) Rehab Clinic today, Feb. 4, 2021 located inside the campus of Riverside College.
Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy College Dean, Dr. Jair Kimri P. Jingco, in his welcome message, shared his thoughts on the purpose of the Rehab Clinic as a venue for student interns to develop more passion and energy in dealing with their patients. Dr. Jingco emphasized the importance of developing students who will not just see their patients as mere cases but rather as individuals who deserve the treatment needed to reduce pain and restore their strength and mobility. The Rehab Clinic will also address the Research and Community Extension priorities of the College of Physical Therapy.
Riverside College continues to provide a safe learning environment for its students amidst the pandemic through the availability of Virtual Laboratories in the College of Physical Therapy which are used to simulate actual laboratory experiences.
The blessing of the Rehab Clinic was conducted by Rev. Fr, Giovanni Garde, former Coordinator of the PT Department in the presence of Riverside College President Mr. Samuel Z. Lee, VP for Academic Affairs Dr. Michelle M. Saplada, other Officers and the Faculty of the College of Physical Therapy.
