"When I graduated, getting your Doctorate in Physical Therapy was a very new and exciting thing, and UCA was on the cutting edge as only the 6th school in the nation offering the DPT. I feel it successfully pioneered the way for other PT programs to grow and expand in our great state of Arkansas. Our PT program always wanted to be the best of the best, offering students the very best opportunities and experiences possible. The faculty were amazingly approachable and honestly cared that you learned the field thoroughly and enjoyed learning. While they did not make the program easy by any means, they ensured the students who "stuck it out" and studied hard really had a passion for their field. We were given many hands-on learning experiences in and out of the classroom to practice our skills with patients in need and many opportunities to volunteer with the surrounding communities. We had instructors who had a strong passion for their jobs and shared their experiences with us to help us learn. We were offered seemingly endless opportunities to work in a variety of settings as part of our hands-on training and were given fair opportunities to go and practice in clinicals where we wanted. The classroom and lab work adequately prepared us for clinical experiences and made me feel confident and comfortable working in new settings with a variety of documentation styles. The experiences and knowledge I gained from UCA's PT program made me a confident new employee right out of grad school. UCA's program would be an exceptional experience for anyone interested in PT school."

"UCA DPT program is rated highly every year for a reason! The professors are incredible, always willing to help in whatever way they can to enhance learning. The class is small enough to get to know your classmates, but large enough to get different experiences with different people. Curriculum is comprehensive, but organized in a way that everything begins to come together and make sense in a clinical application way. You learn so much, and have fun doing it!"

"Pros: The DPT department's faculty is absolutely amazing. There is a great variety of expertise among them that they are able to bring to the classroom. The department has their own, private building that allows students after-hours access to lab materials and study rooms. Several classes require hands-on treatment sessions with clients from the community and this allows students to build their skills on providing quality client care. Cons: I have no complaints!"
