"Widener University is a small school with an intimate classroom experience. Students are on a first name basis with faculty members. Professors take time to meet with students outside of class for questions and advise. The university has great relations with the surrounding community and provides many opportunities for its students to get involved in community engagement. Employment rate for graduates of my doctoral program is 96% within 6 months following graduation."

"Widener university was the best decision I have ever made in my life and I have had to make many decisions in my youth. This past year of being out of Wideners DPT program solidified my choice. I honestly couldn't have chosen a better place. So many oppportunities were handed to me because of this place, and I am truly honored to have taken every opportunity this university has provided to me."

"Widener University physical therapy doctorate program is of high standards. The professors and faculty are always available and commited to our education. Widener could improve in helping their students find loan forgiveness programs, financial aid opportunties, and scholarships."

"Pros include that the professors are really accessible and willing to work with you to succeed. Also clinical education coordinators are very helpful in placing students at great sites for clinical experience. Cons include that the school isn't in the best location and the library doesn't have the best hours. but the school has great campus safety."

"Quality professors and nice facilities for the physical therapy institute. Compared to other PT schools, the cost of attending is much less and is a great affordable options. Surrounding area of Chester, PA is not safe, especially at night."

"The pros of our program is that is well-connected throughout the three years of students, the faculty are all up to date on new literature and know what they are talking about, the entire staff and faculty are supportive of all the students and want us to succeed, we have a building for Physical Therapy, and we have our own student run pro-bono clinic. The cons of the program is that we do not have our own anatomy cadaver facility, and it is competitive to get into and stay in with a B or higher average, but that is what is required on the Boards."

"My graduate program is an extremely competitive program. It is very challenging, yet do-able. The program requires a lot of time during class and then encourages group studying outside of classes. The professors are very helpful and bright."
