College of Rehabilitative Sciences

With roots dating back to Physical Therapy’s year of inception in 1974, the Cebu Doctors’ University College of Rehabilitative Sciences (CDUCRS), formerly known as Cebu Doctors' College of Rehabilitative Sciences (CDCRS), falteringly, yet decisively made its mark within the memoirs of Cebu Doctors' University (CDU). Somehow, throughout the coming years, the deans and chairpersons of Physical Therapy (PT) and eventually Occupational Therapy (OT), together with undeniably altruistic teachers, played a vital role in shaping the destiny of CDUCRS. These selfless professionals responded to the challenge of bringing PT and OT to a considerable height and prestige.

B.S. in PHYSICAL THERAPY (4 year course)

Physical Therapy (PT) is a course which prepares the student to assess, care for, and treat physical disability which may be the result of a neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, or cardiopulmonary dysfunction. It views these disorders in the context of how the normal human movement and function have been altered and how the individual’s capabilities to interact with and within the environment, have been changed. It is in this area that the physical therapists function to help the patient achieve a balance between ability and disability. The therapists will work with a wide range of age groups – from the pediatric to the geriatric. They will treat permanent and temporarily disabled individuals.

They will consider the structure and characteristics of the patients they work with. The therapists must be trained to take on various roles and be highly prepared intellectually as well as emotionally.

B.S. in OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY (4 year course)

The Occupational Therapy (OT) curriculum is geared towards the training of therapists to treat patients with disabilities from the perspective of “occupation or work”. The occupational therapists work not only with physical but also with emotional and psychological disabilities. Their goal in the treatment of these patients is to help them become ready to reenter society, leading productive, independent and satisfying lives.

The occupational therapists will be expected not only to know how to recognize dysfunction but also to do evaluations of the patients with emotional dysfunction. Furthermore, the therapists should know how to plan treatment programs for them. The OT’s work with a variety of patients. For patients with acquired or congenital physical disabilities, they may fabricate splints and other forms of assistive devices to allow devices to allow these patients to accomplish their daily tasks more efficiently. With the mentally ill patients, they may conduct treatments to help them cope with activities of daily living and prepare them for reintegration into society. On the whole, the OT’s prepare and re-establish in their patients the skills needed to accomplish the day to day activities and where possible, regain employment.
