UJPT is a young, vibrant, evidence-based program that prepares students to provide high quality patient-centered care as physical therapist. The faculty are young, motivated, and enthusiastic about teaching and truly put the students’ needs first. UJ also teaches what is current in the literature and prepares students exceptionally well for the clinic.
My time in the UJPT program was an incredible experience. During my time there I built great relationships with classmates and faculty. I always felt like the faculty truly cared about every student and wanted each of us to be great young clinicians and individuals.
I think the education I received prepared me well for both clinical experiences and to take the NPTE. Regardless of the obstacles we faced individually or as a group, I always felt I had support from those in the program. I’m very grateful for all of the experiences I had while at UJPT and I’m going to miss being around my classmates and faculty.
I loved having clinical experiences throughout the 3 years rather than just at the end. It was a great way to break up coursework and kept me excited to learn more when returning to the classroom. I also appreciated the smaller class size for more one-on-one time with the professors.
UJPT does not seem to be a cookie-cutter PT program and rather one that truly listens to its students and is always looking for ways to improve…You develop a very close relationship with classmates and faculty which makes three years fly by.
