Statement of Philosophy
The faculty of the SU PhysicalTherapy Program believe that: The human being is created in the image and likeness of god— a unique yet unified whole with spiritual, biological, mental, emotional,socio-cultural, and environmental components. As a member of a family, a community, and the world, his day-to-day encounter with life affects the wholeness of an individual. Physical Therapy is a humanistic science that seeks to assist the person in meeting his/her health needs and problems. This is achieved through independent practice or in collaboration with health and non-health disciplines by promoting and restoring health, preventing illness and treating disease conditions, and by improving functional capabilities that provide the best care through rehabilitative techniques. Physical Therapist is one who has acquired the essential knowledge, skills, and desirable attitudes so that he/she can function efficiently in any work setting.
