Our program has been preparing students to be highly competent and compassionate professionals for over 45 years. We take pride in having brought the most advanced educational philosophies, facilities, and other resources together with the finest professional faculty to create a uniquely effective learning experience.
Proof of our program's commitment to students is our graduation rate: for the last two years (2017 and 2018) 98 percent of our students have graduated from the program. From the first day of class to the last, we view our students as future colleagues and professionals, ever striving to teach and to interact with respect for each student.
High Pass Rate
Proof of our commitment to provide excellent education is the fact that over the past two years (2017 and 2018) our graduates have achieved a 97 percent first time pass rate on the National Physical Therapy Board Examination.
Small Class Size
Class size is limited to a maximum of 50 students per class, with a high faculty-to-student ratio. This means classes are small enough for students to receive individual attention, yet large enough to provide a level of diversity among class members that enhances the education process. Small classes enable us to teach our students not only to explore current trends and creatively provide treatment today, but also to develop the skills to stay on the forefront of the profession throughout their careers.
Our graduates can be found in a variety of urban and rural practice settings throughout the United States and in several foreign countries. Historically, and over the past two years (2017 and 2018), our post-graduation employment rate was 100 percent for our graduate who have sought employment. They are practicing clinicians in hospitals, outpatient clinics, assisted living centers, in public schools, etc. They hold prestigious faculty positions at major universities. They are administrators of major health care organizations and clinics. They are consultants to industry and other national health organizations.
