My current accomplishments in my Physical Therapy career won’t be possible without the foundational knowledge that my mentors in UB taught me. I remembered the days when we used to report our assigned cases/diseases every time I encountered those cases while I was answering questions from the local PT board exam and in the National Physical Therapy Examination in the US.
My memorization skills may fail me, but my foundational knowledge was there to help me analyze and answer questions which ultimately helped me pass the exams and gain my license in both the Philippines and in the US. The knowledge I gained at UB also helped me while I was studying my post-graduate degree – Doctor of Physical Therapy in Arcadia University.
I have visited my college notes often in order to help me answer some essays, projects and assignments that were given to us during my post-grad studies. Aside from the knowledge that was imparted to me, I was also given support by my mentors especially Ma’am Ruth, the office staff and the Registrar even after graduation.
They encouraged me and helped me process my credentials so that I could have my FCCPT type 1-certificate. Everything that I have achieved, I owe it to my roots and for that, I am immensely grateful.
