3 students up for US internship

Three fifth year Physical Therapy students from the Institute of Rehabilitative Sciences of Silliman University in Dumaguete City will spend a three-month clinical internship with Seton Hall University in New Jersey, USA, this year, a press release from the school said.

Stephanie Jane Abila, Ingrid Marina Isabella Del Omo, and Tobi Jasper Enriquez are the second batch of recipients of the partnership between SHU and Silliman University. They will be assigned in two different rehabilitation facilities in New Jersey, USA, from September 1 to November 30.

IRS director Cyflor Putong said the selection of interns was merit-based. “We ranked our applicants according to their cumulative QPA from first year to fourth year.”

Last year, senior PT student Diane Grace Uymatiao undertook a similar internship program under the supervision of the School of Health and Medical Sciences of SHU, the press release added.*
