"Dominican College's DPT program impressed me from the start with their hands-on learning approach, class schedule, and most importantly, their evaluation framework. The teaching staff is extremely knowledgeable, young, energetic, and practical who all still treat patients during the week. This is a huge advantage as a student because all of our learning is tied back to practical application. The curriculum flows trimester to trimester overlapping, solidifying and building on itself; reinforcing the key components needed for success. Having seven years of experience as a Certified Athletic Trainer before joining the Dominican DPT program, I can with certainty state, that the organization of the program, knowledge of professors, atmosphere and structural framework of care have beyond exceeded my expectations. I think that after any program the goal is to not only have the knowledge, skills, and precision but also be confident in your abilities. DC DPT has given my classmates and I these attributes and I am certain we hold an advantage over other DPT program students. I fully endorse the Dominicans DPT program for not only individuals who want to become a physical therapist, but also those who are striving to take it to another level."

"The weekend format is great for those who will be proactive, proficient in time management, and self-motivating. All of the core/full-time professors are sincere, supportive, and available. They are all full time practicing clinicians who have a passion for therapy, which is important because you are taught the facts along with the relevant experience and application of the facts. Dominican College's DPT program has recently revamped the staff, their approach to teaching, and the resources available to its students. My classmates and I have received feedback from our clinical instructors that we are performing at an advanced level as practitioners, standing out from other school's PT students. Overall, I am incredibly grateful to have been accepted into this program and feel confident and prepared to be a medical professional. One consideration about the program is that when you go on your clinical affiliation, you still have classes, exams, and projects occurring simultaneously, which can be overwhelming. However, with the proper time management and planning, it is manageable and will prepare you to handle high intensity workloads for the future. I would have liked the program to expose us more to fellowship programs post-graduation. I also would have liked more financial support such as the white coat ceremony prep, lab equipment, and required online softwares. Overall, if you attend and graduate from this program, you will be faced with seemingly overwhelming challenges that will sculpt you into a wise, prepared, "woke" professional with the latest & greatest set of knowledge and skills for you to use to develop an amazing career!"

"I am currently a member of the Physical Therapy program at Dominican College. Attending Dominican College's DPT program was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Our professors go above and beyond for their students and I feel that they care about their students as people and more than just their grades. The curriculum was carefully thought out by a new director (as of a few years ago) and this curriculum sets you up for success in your career in physical therapy. Any reviews that you have read in the past are outdated, as the program has completely turned around for the better. The professors also recently set up a Dominican College Pro-Bono clinic which allows students to learn hands-on techniques on real patients with real injuries. The professors are overlooking everything that happens in the pro-bono clinic to ensure safety and quality of treatment for the patients. This is an amazing experience that we are so lucky to have at Dominican College. There are so many benefits of attending this program and I can assure you that you will be glad you decided to apply!"

"This school Is good to attend after you've gone to a big school and experienced all of what a major university has to offer. I say so because there is not much for students to do here, if you're looking for a very very small school then this is for you. If you want to experience college I suggest going to a bigger school. I only recommend this school if you're studying nursing, Occupational therapy or Masters in business. Thats it! Anything else, you can get better else where."

"The Dominican College DPT program is outstanding. It is not what it once was years ago as the faculty, staff, and director are all new. The professors are experts in their fields and many of them have fellowships in orthopedic manual therapy which is one of the reasons I chose DC DPT. Also, the faculty continue to practice in their own clinics when they are not teaching and this allows for better learning experience because they remember much more about PT and are constantly being challenged by their patients and colleagues. This allows their skills to remain sharp, as opposed to faculty in other schools that strictly stick to research or teaching and have not touched a patient in decades. The program also incorporates clinical scenarios and case studies to compliment the research and theory students are taught. DC DPT faculty and staff are highly skilled, helpful, and personable. The professors answer emails very quickly and some even give their phone numbers to students. They care about student success and I highly recommend attending the Dominican College DPT program."

"This is the only school I found in NY area that has a bridge program from COTA to OTR and allows me to pursue my Masters degree on weekend bases while continue to work and in the shortest period of time. Advisers and OT department personal are very helpfull and gladly assist to solve any upcoming problems in the shortest terms. Classes are not big and proffesors are fare."
