This is a qualitative study aimed to determine the perceptions of DLSHSI clinical preceptors and PT interns (Batch 2014) on the use of internet technology for telementoring concerning technicalities which include duration, mode of communication and devices used, benefits and strengths, weaknesses and recommendations, and probable advantages and disadvantages of the use of internet technology compared to other media for telementoring using one-on-one interview and focal group discussion. The subjects were selected using purposive and random sampling and were asked to have one (1) telementoring session with an intern presenting a case. The researchers conclude that there are positive benefits and strengths when it comes to the availability and efficiency in the use of internet technology for telementoring based on the results of qualitative analysis of the interview sessions. Internet technology saves money and time and is convenient when applied in telementoring. Thus, it can help in work management of the CS because a lot of feedback would be given.
