"Texas Woman's University pioneered the first physical therapy program in Texas to award the Masters and DPT degrees in the field, and the only program to offer the Ph.D. The long-term excellence of the physical therapy program at TWU, along with the supplemental learning labs and the Ph.D. fast track option, are a few of the attributes that enticed me to pursue a degree at this University. I understand the benefits of putting knowledge to practice; and the learning labs support and provide me with the opportunity to work alongside licensed physical therapists, where I receive high quality assistance and apply my classroom experience to enhance my learning. Lastly, considering that TWU offers over 500 clinical sites to choose from, showcasing the healthy and consistent relationships that the University has with various clinical sites across the United States, I have access to quality clinical experiences. This is the most important factor to me because many other Texas DPT programs are having difficulty accessing clinical sites due to the saturation of programs."

"I didn't truly realize how well prepared we were at TWU until I became a working clinician. I'm so thankful for the skills and wide knowledge base I acquired during PT school although that is just the beginning of each TWU student's potential. Not to mention, the faculty is amazing."

"As a working clinician, when you mention to people that you graduated from TWU, people already expect that you're great! TWU by far was the most rewarding educational experience I could've asked for. Professors are so open to helping you and your classmates will always be there to help you. The experience that all the professors have is unique and every single one of them is definitely more than qualified to fill your 3 years of grad school with knowledge. Amazing opportunities being in the medical center. So much more that I could say but just know that TWU is known for making excellent clinicians!"

"I loved Texas Woman's University while I was there and I am very proud to say that I earned my degree from this school. This is the cheapest university to attend and receive your doctorate of physical therapy. This is one of the biggest reliefs now that I am paying back my loans!"

"TWU (Houston campus) offered an absolutely excellent array of hands on experiences throughout the program. Being located in the largest medical center in the world has a huge, and positive, impact on the instruction and the ability to see a wide variety of real-life patient examples. Additionally, there were frequently continuing ed courses or other "extra" learning opportunities offered through the campus or other nearby schools that were offered for free or at a discount for TWU students. Overall, if you're looking for a program that will not only prepare you for your career but also give you an edge with extra learning opportunities and excellent didactic and hands on training, this school is a good fit."

"I received an amazing education at TWU-Houston. I was prepared to start my career as a physical therapist by the most wonderful professors & staff, who all genuinely care about each student being successful. I couldn't have picked a better place to earn my DPT. It was a grueling course load, but I could certainly see the difference in my TWU education vs. students from other schools when out on clinicals. Beautiful campus in the heart of the Texas Medical Center & so much opportunity to learn from the incredible medical institutions nearby. Go to TWU!"

"I am proud of being a graduate from the Texas Woman's University - Houston campus DPT program. Entrance into the program is highly competitive, particularly as the application process does not include an interview. Therefore, the applicant must be outstanding in their undergraduate degree, letters of recommendation, observational hours, and GRE score. The Houston campus is directly in the heart of the largest medical center in the world. Therefore, this campus has a cutting edge in clinical education at the best of the best hospitals and clinics through observations and internships woven throughout the curriculum. The quality of the education is incomparable, particularly because 100% of the faculty are physical therapists themselves, with a majority still actively practicing in the clinic setting. The faculty goes above and beyond to help the students in learning material which more than prepares the students for the foundation they need for their internships. This also is reflected in the near 100% first-time pass rate year after year on the NPTE. I have only praise and respect for this program and, again, am a proud alumnus!"

"+ Top ranked program with a long history of success in the field of physical therapy. + Ability to work towards a DPT and PhD concurrently. + Phenomenal new facility with outstanding resources and access to the heart of Dallas, TX. + Cadaver dissections completed by the DPT students. - Many professors don't welcome after class inquiry or interaction. - Program is large which can take away from the camaraderie of the cohort."

"The campus is very pretty & easy to get around. It feels very safe with security guards always there. You also have to hay an ID to access rooms. All the PT classrooms are all on one floor. Plenty of computers if you need to print anything. There is any kind of equipment you can think of if it pertains to your degree. I feel all the courses are preparing you for the real world so you will be more than ready & equipped with anything that comes your way."

"This program is filled with highly qualified professors that are specialists in their area of study, and the curriculum is extensive with a demanding workload. I believe TWU's DPT program provides a quality education that prepares its students for professional performance in any subsection of practice."

"A major pro for TWU is the open and welcoming atmosphere from other students, faculty, and staff. As soon as you set foot in a classroom, it is immediately apparent that everyone around you wants to see you succeed and will do anything that they can to assure that that will happen. That is not to say that it is not a challenging program; the faculty and staff recognize that in three short years, we should be prepared to practice physical therapy at a doctorate level, and as such it is up to them to adequately prepare us through examinations, assessments, and practicals. They have set up challenges and expectations for us, but they provide us with all the knowledge and skills we need to know, along with the abilities and confidence to do well in the classroom setting, and eventually in a clinical setting. Something I think TWU could be better about is integrating the three programs that are on the Dallas campus: DPT, MOT, and BSN. We all pass each other on the stairs and sit in the same cafeteria at lunch, but there is not much opportunity for interaction. It could be a great way to learn about working together on a health care team, as could very possibly be the case post-graduation."

"I am so glad I chose TWU's physical therapy DPT program. The Dallas campus is amazing, and the program is really top-notch. It's competitive to get in, and the workload is rigorous, but I am completely confident that I will be well-prepared to enter any specialty in the field of physical therapy when I graduate. The campus atmosphere is also really friendly and supportive."

"I could not have a made a better choice in choosing TWU for my graduate program. As soon as you arrive you can sense the friendly environment. The state of the art building is perfectly located in Dallas where there is plenty of extra curricular events and sights not far from the campus. The walk from the bus stop or the train station to campus is very manageable without the feeling of being in an unsafe environment. The Dallas campus is limited to one building with only three educational programs which make it easy to make friends and meet new people. The building is suitable for the number of students as there is very little competition for study rooms or computers. The only cons are that, because of its size, there is little extracurricular activities provided by the school such as intramurals. The library and building sometimes close down earlier than you need them to before tests and are not open on Sundays."

"The pros of TWU are that it is a smaller class size, making it a better learning environment and more access to faculty assistance when necessary. The main con of TWU is that the word "woman" deters many males from applying, as a result my particular class is very limited. However, this is less of an issue in other years."

"The Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program at Texas Woman's University is top notch. The faculty are all leaders in their area of expertise, who together make an exceptional team shaping the next generation of leaders in physical therapy. The program is nationally ranked as one of the best valued programs, and internal assessments/improvements are continuously made to maintain that status. Texas Woman's University's location in the Texas Medical Center is optimal for prime clinical rotations and labs involving real patients - a valuable element which helps integrate classroom and textbook knowledge with real-life situations. For these reasons and more, Texas Woman's University's DPT program is exceptional program of great value to our profession."

"I absolutely love this program and would choos it again, hands down, any day. I continue to receive support from faculty even though I have graduated in relation to career development, job opportunities, and staying connected with the university. I was once told by a clinical instructor that she could tell the difference between students that attended TWU's School of Physical Therapy as compared to other schools of Texas. She stated that we are much more prepared and work well, even as students, in the clinic setting."
