From 1994-2008, the first two years of the course were offered in the Far Eastern University, Manila. The next two years were spent in the School of Physical Therapy, FEU-NRMF where major physical therapy subjects and basic medical sciences are taught. The last year involves the internship program which exposes the students to clinical cases and PT application in different accredited government and private institutions. In 2006, the School of Physical Therapy started to accept first year applicants in FEU-NRMF under the Associate in Health Science Education Program.
