Keiser University Reviews - Associate in Physical Therapy
Review of Physical Therapy Associate Degrees
I feel kind of lucky that I had the opportunity to study physical therapy assistant program at Keiser. Couldn't believe I got a job right away butt they run a tight ship and it paid off. The instructors are knowledgeable but also very supportive. It's an intense program but I finished before I even knew it.
Wow. Where to begin...runaway as fast as you can! This was the worst school I ever attended. You'd think if you are paying top dollar for an education you would be getting what you paid for. Not even close! The school, instructors, everything was a horrible experience. All they want is your money and once you're in, and they have your money, say goodbye to quality education. A joke of a school!
Although I have heard good things about Keiser, the physical therapist assistants I have encountered out in the field have been quite cocky and full of themselves. They do not seem too knowledgeable about what they are doing but they have been very nice people. This program is too short and I feel like it does not provide someone with the experience they need to work out in the field..
On my personal experience I am on my 5 class and I don't have any problem with the school. The teacjers are great I do not have words to describe how amazing they are but the program is really difficul and tough. And as you go forward it get way more difficult. It is not impossible but not easy neither. You have to study a lot and sometimes you have 2 or 3 tests in a week followed by comps which if you fail the third time they dismiss you from the program that is the only thing that i don't like from Keiser but the rest I think is great
My personal experience at Keiser wasn't good at all. The only good memory that I have from here are my classmates and one of the teachers which was very professional and dedicated . But school overall was pretty bad the coordinator for the PTA program make most of the students cry just because she feels like she own the world and also students personal life's . Financial Aid also a big disaster . I don't know how it works for other programs at the school but for the PTA in the first month of class they give you 2 test that not even are suppose to give you, they test you about another topic" Kinesiology" and the first class is Introduction to PTA , the point is that if you don't pass does 2 test with more than 70% they dismiss you from the program . Not recommend this school at least for this program. There are many school which are accredited as them by CAPTE and without the ridiculous policies.
I see there are a lot of negative reviews! First off, I'd like to mention that Keiser isn't for everyone! You have to have the right mindset with the ability to go at a fast pace. I'm currently in my second month and I have no complaints. The students and instructors are all very personable. Yes, the tuition is high. If it wasn't that high the quality of instructors would be terrible. I'm fine with paying a high price if it means getting a quality education. Some of the books are pricy, but many can be purchased used. I love Keiser!
