The American Health Council warmly welcomes Ms. Alice Ferrer to the Physical Therapy Board. Amassing over 30 year’s experience working within the healthcare industry, Ms. Ferrer has gained extensive knowledge in physical therapy.
Ms. Ferrer began on her path to becoming a physical therapist following on from her original aspirations to be a nurse in the Philippines. After her father was involved in an accident, the insight she received after seeing him undergo physical therapy and the care that he was given inspired her to become a physical therapist.
In her next steps, Ms. Ferrer enrolled at the Cebu’s Doctors’ University, a private university located in the Philippines that was founded in 1975. Completing her studies in her time at the institute, Ms. Ferrer graduated BSPT in 1987.

Passionate in helping patients and staff, Ms. Ferrer dedicates her time to training staff, allowing her to share her valuable knowledge with other team members whilst always striving to learn more by continuing education courses. With her natural desire to help others, Ms. Ferrer works in collaboration with other healthcare providers alongside her role working towards an overall aim of benefiting the patients.
