The physical therapy program at Arcadia University offers a challenging curriculum. The faculty is mindful of the current status of the healthcare system in the United States and helps students to understand the importance of practicing based on current evidence found in research literature. While this can be difficult (finding, sorting, reading, and understanding pertinent articles is time consuming) it requires that students are truly progressing toward best care for patients. Asking students to become proficient at this process while in graduate school, I feel, sets them up for success in doing so once practicing. The faculty is always approachable, more than capable of answering tough questions, and consistently mindful of individual students. The location of the university is great for someone who enjoys the opportunity of going into a large city but prefers to live outside of it. The program relies heavily on the use of computers and the school's IT network fails occasionally, making lectures and even exams difficult on occasion. Outside of these technical glitches, the physical therapy program is one of the best in preparing students for effective physical therapy practice.
