- To create a faculty and staff development program that is geared toward their professional growth and development.
- To develop relevant programs with appropriate learning experiences.
What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses, treats, and works to prevent disease and disability through physical means. Physiotherapists are experts in movement and function who work in partnership with their patients, assisting them to overcome movement disorders, which may have been present from birth, acquired through accident or injury, or are the result of ageing or life-changing events.
The College of Physical Therapy guided by DMMC–IHS, will provide a relevant and research – based curriculum and quality therapeutic programs to produce globally competent and service – oriented physical therapist.
DMMC Institute of Health Sciences College of Physical Therapy / Occupational therapy will be the leading provider of quality provider of quality therapeutic programs in the country.
- To design and develop a balance program of research , service and practice that is responsive to the diverse and challenging needs of both local and international communities.
- To develop relevant programs with appropriate learning experience.
- To implement research – based health care programs that are geared toward policy – formulation inherent to productive clinical experience.
- To create a development program for the faculty and staff particularly focused on their personal and professional growth.
BS in Radiologic Technology in the Philippines
Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technology (BSRadTech) is a four year degree program designed to train students how to operate medical imaging equipment such as X-rays, CT scanners, MRIs, sonogram machines, and 3D medical imaging programs among other computer and web-based software programs. Students are also taught how to perform associated clerical duties, including scheduling and maintaining paperwork for office and clinical machinery.
The College of Radiologic Technology of DMMC-Institute of Health Sciences , a Commission of Higher Education (CHED) accredited institution aims to be a source of locally and globally competent Radiologic Technologists with expertise in providing high level of skills in the field of Imaging Science.
DMMC Institute of Health Sciences has the latest acquisition of XRAY / Radiographic Positioning Doll.
The X-Ray Positioning Manikin is an invaluable teaching aid for training Radiographers in Schools of Radiography, without bringing discomfort or danger to patients or students.
- This simulator is highly regarded by Schools of Radiography throughout the world
- Life-size human figure containing a fully flexible articulated skeleton produced from a specially selected grade of plastic
- No metal parts are used in the articulation of the skeleton
- Easily identifiable anatomical landmarks
- The body covering has the combined properties of being able to simulate surface anatomy whilst remaining totally radiolucent
- Representations of the larynx, heart, lungs and kidneys are constructed from radiolucent material Weight – the Doll is light enough to be carried easily
- Joint flexibility – there is slight hyperflexion of the knees and elbows. The hip rotation is sufficient and generally the joints are realistic
- Flexible and durable articulation of the skeleton ensures a lengthy period of use
The Doll is best used in the recumbent positions as, although it is possible to use an upright bucky with supports, this makes the use of positioning blocks and immobilization devices more difficult. The Doll will lie naturally in the neutral position, prone or supine, without support. A wide selection of positioning aids must be at hand, e.g. foam blocks, wedges, sand bags and compression band. These are essential to maintain any position other than neutral as the skin of the Doll has some resistance to overcome. This is, of course, an advantage in the teaching as it prevents the student cutting corners by omitting the use of these positioning aids. The Doll can be positioned for all standard projections with no more difficulty than a difficult patient might present.
The Radiographic Positioning Doll was positioned and imaged for a whole body CT investigation, making normal use of projection radiography for planning purposes. The resulting images were very good in terms of body outline and fundamental structure, but there were fundamental differences regarding the quantitation of tissue (i.e. the expected CT numbers). Certain areas of the skeletal structure, such as thoracic vertebrae and the head of the femur gave similar values to the typical patient. It was not surprising also that the lung fields were reasonably representative, though lacking in any structure. The Doll fulfills its function very well as a training device for positioning for conventional X-ray and CT. This is because the results of positioning can be imaged (albeit using very unrepresentative exposure factors) and hence the positioning can be critically examined. However, the current design is so different from the human body in terms of X-ray attenuation that it is clearly impossible to use it for training or practicing exposure control.
BS in Psychology in the Philippines
The Bachelor of Science in Psychology program (BSP) is designed to help you observe human behavior through
the scientific method, allowing you to gain access to the human psyche and fathom its depths. You will gain the knowledge, tools and skills needed to assess and conduct empirical research regarding individual and group behavior though the lens of various psychological theories and concepts. The BSP degree can prepare you for general careers in teaching, research, counseling and human resources. It can also be a foundation major for further studies in the fields of Medicine, Guidance and Counseling, Human Resource Development and Law.
What skills are required to succeed in this course?
These are the skills that you need to possess or develop to be able to succeed in this course:
- A keen interest for people and the intricacies of human behavior.
- Interpersonal skills – you must be able to relate to all kinds of people as social beings and understand the motivations for their actions.
- Intrapersonal skills – this includes the personal capacity for self–reflection and assessment. You must be able to understand yourself in order to understand others.
- Communication skills – you must be an active listener who understands the uniqueness of every person and yet communicates in a patient manner in order to change the behavior of others.
- Analytical skills – Human behavior is very complex, and a scientific method is needed to analyze and measure the variations for certain actions.
- Decision making skills – suggesting courses of action for different individuals requires gathering evidence, assessing probable consequences and making quick yet difficult judgment calls.
In DMMC Institute of Health Sciences, this program aims to provide undergraduate students with a solid basic foundation on the major areas of Psychology which may also be used as preparation for further studies and training in particular specializations of Psychology or other professions such as education, law, business management and a preparation for further studies in medicine.
The student of the College of Psychology attended a convention last September 12, 2015 in Lyceum of the Philippines University Batangas under the division of TATSULOK (Alyansa Ng Mga Mag-aaral sa Sikolohiyang Pilipino) and Sikolohiyang Pilipino. The theme “I10TIDAD: Pagtuklas sa Maskara at Pagkatao ng mga Pilipino sa likod ng Makabagong Panahon” A seminar that aims to give understanding about Filipino Psychology and to provide a wide raise perceptive about concept of psychology that is exceptional to Filipino culture.
The topics discussed were about the social theories which are somehow applicable in present day. There were also segment named “Pambasag Yelo” it is likely an ice breaker in common term which entertains most of the participants. There was cultural presentation that excites most of the students. The most stimulating part in the convention was about social media with a title “Sino daw ako? Ang mga Pilipino sa Harap ng Social Media.” There was also debate with the topic Social Media Today: Is posting on social media be tolerated publicly or keep it in you. The debate strikes the attention of everyone since all participants were teenagers and presently vast of teens are expose to social media. The convention seminar ended with full of awareness and knowledge about today’s perspective about Psychology.
