My education at SACI has allowed me to begin a fulfilling career as a Licensed Physical Therapist. I have been given the opportunity to do my internship program in some of the busiest DOH/ Government hospitals in the country and to learn various rehabilitation practices and skills. Within the course I was able to build a foundational understanding that I was able to use during my practice.
Moreover, my professors helped arose my curiosity and desire for continued learning.
Overall, I am proud to be an alumna for it helped me shape my career and the person I am today.

As a graduate of SOUTHEAST ASIAN COLLEGE INC. I can say that they truly serve their mission, to give education of the highest quality. Lots of things was taught to us that made us, US today.
I am thankful for all the knowledge and skills they’ve instilled in us to become professionals not only in the aspect of being a clinician but also an educator.
Clarence Christian G. Esparaz
The College of Physical Therapy in Southeast Asian College Inc. was a blessing in disguise for me in terms of speaking from the perspective of a transferee student from another PT school because unlike the previous school, SACI was a very homecoming experience for me. The professors are what makes the college incredible and outstanding. They were not just instructors or lecturers I saw them as people who really are passionate about their students achieving their dreams as professionals in their respective fields.
I will always keep them in my heart as the professors whom I will always respect and admire for without them I wouldn’t have become a college degree holder nor a licensed Physical Therapist today.

SACI College of Physical Therapy is not just a school or a department for me. It is a home where I felt safe to hone every bit of my skills, knowledge and talent. Our department built the best foundation of what I am today, what I have achieved, and what I will soon become in the future.
I wouldn’t be an amazing licensed physical therapist without the professors who helped me in every step of the way. I can clearly remember during my review for the board exams, my professors would allow me to sit in their class so I can review better.
And now, I finally have my very own clinic at the same time teaching in the academe. I am more than excited to share that I have treated some celebrities immediately after I got my license! Never in my wildest dreams have I ever thought I would come this far.
Aside from the technical aspect of the profession, I also was able to use my other talent which is in the arts. I would always do free make up for our department’s candidate in the Ms. SACI pageant. I always looked forward to that activity of the school year which had become my favorite part being able to express my artistic talent without any hesitation.
SACI was surely my best training ground.
The professors were the best support system not just in my profession, but also in my personal growth and with the talents I have. I am very thankful for them. They were with me in my every milestone, since I entered college and up until now.
Now that I am also a professor in the academe, I still look up to them and collaborate to produce amazing professionals like I am.
I can not thank Southeast Asian College and my beloved professors enough for the fantastic job they selflessly did for me.

Southeast Asian College Inc. is one among those unique Institutions. SACI and Faculties provides high standard of education. They help students achieve their goals and build careers. They also enhances distinctive competencies and skill sets that help students grow their professional life in an exponential pace.
No doubt, I made the best choice. I am now a Licensed Physical Therapist and now works as a private PT with knowledge and skills necessary and important to provide my patients with the highest quality of care.

Being enrolled in BSPT program was not really my choice. But as I continued the journey with the help of our PT professors, who actually cared about our progress and didn’t mind going extra mile to help us out, I finished the program. I was able to appreciate the intricacy of the design and functions of our human brain and the other systems of our body.
I am now a Licensed Physical Therapist, and I am currently using the knowledge I obtained from the program to provide excellent care, improve strength, mobility, function and recapture lives before injury.
Rexmon M. Gorospe
Fresh from the Mindoro province with my high school diploma, I came here to Manila with no idea what I was going to be. My father is a farmer and my mother is a housewife from Occidental Mindoro.
We didn’t know that application for colleges and universities start at least 6 months prior to the next school year and classes was about to start then. Fortunately, my nurse Aunt who is an alumna of Southeast Asian College Inc helped me apply at her Alma Mater and I got in the College of Radiologic Technology, the flagship program of SACI, having a history of topping the board and competent and topnotch professionals in the field.
But sooner I decided to shift to Physical Therapy which could better prepare me for my dream to become a medical doctor, PT having anatomy and physiology subjects. I remember, one of my classmates at that time told me that I should have been in big universities like UP or UST. Things happened for a reason. SACI might not be the best school out there but SACI has a tight community and the teachers are really compassionate and kind. They take care of the students and cater the schedule for irregular students. They reward hard working students with academic scholarship which I was able to enjoy during my college years.
Eventually I passed my board exam and before I went into medical school, I taught anatomy and physiology as an assistant professor in SACI’s PT department. Teaching is my way of giving back to my alma mater. I am now a 3rd year medical student at University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center Inc. (UERMMMCI).
Wherever school you graduate from, what matters most are your character and grit not to give up. Who would have thought that me from a remote barrio in Mindoro would be a future doctor in the making.
