The vital foundation of clinical practice in the work of a healthcare professionals is ensuring competency in patient safety. The topic of patient safety has frequently been the focus of concern across field of health sciences and is a significant issue in health care (Usher et al., 2017). With the use of H-PEPSS (Health Professional Education in Patient Safety Survey), the study used a descriptive-comparative design that enables the researchers to objectively determine primarily the level of self-reported patient safety competence of the Batch 2022 Physical Therapy Interns that underwent clinical experience through telerehabilitation internship. The study presented with a significant difference to what the 80 PT interns learned in the domains of Working in Teams with Other Health Professionals and Recognize, Respond to and Disclose Adverse Events and Close Calls between the classroom and clinical setting, and no significant differences observed between settings on the rest of the domains. In conclusion, the Batch 2022 PT interns generated a level of patient safety competency with highest confidence in the domain of Communicating Effectively and the least confidence for Recognize, Respond to and Disclose Adverse Events and Close Call domain, with the clinical setting higher than the classroom setting.
