The faculty is what makes this program so great, each faculty member brings a professional and new perspective to many different clincal situations.

"Texas Tech Health Science Center DPT program in my opinion has been very valuable experience so far. The teaching staff are highly knowledgeable and extremely approachable to us as students. Our program set up is efficient and effective for each student to become a high functioning clinician in any setting in physical therapy. The facilities/classroom setting are an interactive hands on environment that has been instrumental in my development to this point. I would highly recommend any prospective DPT students to take a look at TTUHSC if they want to get the most out of their education."

"The instructors are very passionate about the subjects they teach and are genuinely interested in helping us learn. They make themselves available to discuss things outside of class and will even wish us luck on our exams in other classes. I am very happy with my time here at TTUHSC!"

"Such amazing professors! I have learned so much in my time as a student so far. The professors provide so many great resources, learning and marketing opportunities, as well as go out of their way to help students as much as they need. My experience is that they not only teach the info in a highly organized way.. they make it to where the students understand the material, and can apply it to their professional careers. The professors are devoted to helping you succeed, and never intentionally try and make you fail. I love the program, and would recommend it to anyone who is looking toward a degree in physical therapy."

"The DPT program at TTUHSC is incredible. The staff are so highly trained, but are not intimidating at all to speak to or learn from. They are incredibly helpful whether you need them all the time or just for a few minutes. All professors are very accessible, even if they are at another campus. The education I have received here at TTUHSC has made me a star at my clinical sites. The other students in the program are now my friends and family for life. All lectures are recorded online and can be accessed any time, which is a huge plus for those days where you just can't seem to pay attention 100%. There are so many leadership opportunities at the HSC and around the Lubbock and West Texas areas. The town is great, and the people here are very sincere and appreciative of PTs. I can't thank everyone in this program for what they have given me!!!"

"I have never felt so welcomed on a campus before in my life. Since my interview back in November, I knew this was the school I wanted to go to for physical therapy. It's been a delight to meet the faculty and students here. I moved two states to be here and I feel right at home!"

"I am a fairly new student in this program and can already see the difference in this school compared to any other that I have been to. I was never the type to have much school spirit and coming to Texas Tech has changed that completely. I love my program and am so proud to be a Texas Tech HSC grad student. My course work is very rigorous but that is to be expected with a doctoral degree. Course work is always related back to its importance in our future clinical work. Our professors are very well educated and involved in their professional field but are also still down to earth and have a sense of humor. They all genuinely care for their students more than I have ever seen in other programs. They are always willing to meet and help in anyway they can. I would recommend Tecas Tech for DPT to anyone."

"When accepted into the TTUHSC DPT program, I was merely thankful to have the opportunity to attend a PT school. However, once courses began I realized how fortunate I was to be apart of such a prestigious program. The faculty and staff truly made my schooling experience engaging, rigorous, and rewarding.They would set aside time to answer questions and assess my clinical skills in lab. I am now currently participating in clinical internships. There is not a day that passes, when I am not proud to state I am a TTUHSC student. Practicing clinicians have complimented TexasTech students and graduates. I am prepared and confident with each patient I work with. I would recommend the TTUHSC DPT Program to every student desiring to be an excellent physical therapy clinician."

"Pros: Low cost of attendance, recent faculty hires which have greatly increased overall quality of education, strong reputation in orthopedics, excellent anatomy course with cadaver lab Cons: 3 split campuses limits access and communication with distant professors, lectures delivered over live video make learning difficult, little to do in the cities in which the campuses are located, severe weather conditions are common, several classes involve ridiculous busy work,"

"The TTUHSC DPT program is a fantastic program. The three biggest pros of the program are the use and promotion of technology use, the connections it has with the rest of the Health Science Center and adjoining hospital, and a very qualified and personable faculty. I do not believe that the program is lacking enough in any one area to be mentioned."

"TTUHSC professors care deeply about teaching us to be physical therapists that treat holistically and giving us a great education to be ready and capable to go into the clinic with the best base knowledge possible. They teach using up-to-date technology and using research evidence to back up their lectures. It is obvious that they want us to succeed because they care so much about the future of physical therapy. Our coursework is strenuous and equivalent to the doctorate level program that it should be, and we are also prepared well and pushed to reach our highest potential in the coursework. TTUHSC offers us academic and emotional support because they care about their students. They offer us the highest quality education while also being affordable."

"Couldn't imaging attending a different DPT program. The support and encouragement I've received thus far, and that I know I will continue to receive has made a huge impact on my overall learning experience and success with synthesizing the information. While I don't have my immediate family nearby- I don't feel alone due to the family atmosphere here at TTUHSC. The one downfall and disappointment has been the struggle with getting clinical sites, but this is a work in progress and the program is striving to make improvements in this area."

"I can not imagine having chosen any other DPT program to attend other than TTUHSC. The program offers the highest education with an amazing staff. The professors here are willing to go above and beyond to further each and every student's education. We are all part of a team, including students and staff, and help each other to make sure we are getting the most out of our time here at Texas Tech. I am confident that when I graduate from the program, I will have been provided with the best knowledge and skill set in order to be the best physical therapist I can be."
