Abstract Introduction- This study evaluated the effectiveness of a health promotion (HP) intervention program among physiotherapyundergraduate students in an academic institution by examining pre- and post-intervention health perceptionsand behaviors compared to a control group (non-physiotherapy students).Methods- Participants completed questionnaires on their health perceptions and behaviors at T1 (April 2009–May 2009)before the intervention program was initiated, and at T2 (April 2015–May 2015) after the intervention programwas implemented for several years. At T1, 1,087 undergraduate students, including 124 physiotherapystudents, participated. At T2, 810 undergraduate students, including 133 physiotherapy students participated.Self-reported health-related perceptions and behaviors were compared in the study group (physiotherapy students)over time (T1 versus T2), and between the study group and the control group (non-physiotherapy students)pre-intervention (T1) and post-intervention (T2). Results- Findings showed more positive perceptions and behaviorsat T2 compared to T1 in the study group (51.0% at T2 versus 35.2% at T1; p<0.05). There was no significantdifference at T2 compared to T1 in health perceptions reported by the control group (37.8% at T2 versus 32.8%at T1; non-significant difference).Conclusion- Our findings demonstrated the effectiveness of the intervention program.
