"The Physical Therapy school does an amazing job preparing its students for careers in the field of Physical Therapy. They care about how their students are doing and make sure that individual learning is optimized for each student. The faculty are experts in their specific fields within PT with leading research and in direct patient care . Because of the clinic on campus faculty are able to have current information in both research and the direct PT to patient interaction."

"The University of Montana's doctoral program for profession of physical therapy is one that holds its soon to be professionals to a high standard. Not only is it located among some of the best fishing and hunting in the region, but the community in which it resides is equally as engaging. Students praise the knowledge and dedication of their professors. Each one is either a practicing clinician or researcher under which students are able to work for and be mentored by. Another great feature of this program is each year the students undergo a clinical experience where they work with a current physical therapist applying and enhancing that years acquired skills. Most of all the national board exams pass rate is over 95%, further supporting that this program is successful."

"I am close to finishing my first year in the UM DPT program and so far I love it! Of course it is graduate school so there is plenty of work involved but the staff and professors are incredibly friendly and helpful. That is one of the main reason I chose UM over the other programs I was accepted into. The program puts a big emphasis on community and service. The small class size means you get to know people well in your class and others so you're already networking and developing lasting friendships. The block schedule takes some getting used to at first because the pace is pretty fast and furious; but it means you're always learning something new and the system encourages an effective building of knowledge so you can become a great DPT! Another plus for me was getting to start clinicals the first year, it's great to get your toes wet and remember why you're in school after all that studying! UMPT is a great choice!"

"The pros to this program are the quality of education, in state costs, professor knowledge and availability and clinical education program. The cons include current course restructuring that causes some confusion..... will likely be resolved eventually as scheduling is figured out."

"This program is geared toward making solid clinicians out of its students. I hear time and time again of the praise UMPT grads receive once they enter the professional world. The program is currently in transition with a change to the scheduling of classes and an ongoing search to fill two professorial positions. So far, the changes have been positive and well received by students."
