Cielo Francisco, PT
Cielo received his Bachelor's Degree from De la Salle Health Science Institute in 2018. He is currently completing his Doctor of Physical Therapy at the University of Montana. Cielo's decision to take up Physical Therapy was greatly influenced by his family members since the majority of his family are healthcare professionals. Growing up, he watched them work and listened to their stories about their patients, and from then on, he got inspired and wanted to pursue something related to helping people with their needs.
Cielo has been working as a Physical Therapist for 2 years, and in the past volunteered at a private hospital in the Philippines, wherein along with treating patients, he worked as a PT Intern training and giving feedback about the intern's performances, unfortunately, had to stop working due to the pandemic. What Cielo like the most in his profession is being able to take part in a person's journey toward reaching their optimal function. He loves the fact that he gets to help patients recover and get back to their hobbies and sport they enjoy.
Cielo's principles are "not to be too comfortable in my job, that no matter how many times I handled the same condition, how long I been doing this career, I'll be thorough with evaluation, care and intervention because, in the end, I am dealing with a human being". Cielo's hobbies outside work are reading books and watching anime. He is also a food lover so when his schedule permits, he like eating out. Cielo's received his dean's lister award at De La Salle Medical Health Science Institute. He has certification in the Telephone & Telemedicine in Clinical Medicine: An Instrument of Opportunity & Risk, (Harvard Medical School) Introductory Course to Dry Needling: A Hands-on Training in the Philippines.
