Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

I love this program. All of the faculty and staff (professors, office staff, director, and even higher ups) truly care about how each one of us does. They teach us how to think as clinicians and do not give us rose-colored glasses to see our upcoming practice with. They communicate well and make sure all 51 students in my class are understanding the material. I cannot brag on the staff enough. I will definitely keep in touch with my professors throughout the years because they are phenomenal practitioners, mentors, and teachers. The program also heavily encourages networking with other health professionals at our school and with the class above/below us, which is helpful whenever you do not know what is going on. Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center's Occupational Therapy program is amazing. The great education I am receiving and the professional connections I am making here are going to put me ahead of so many other students graduating from other schools my year. The TTUHSC campus is very nice and up to date. The OT program got a new lab this year. All of the courses are tailored well and the Gross Anatomy course during the summer was extremely difficult, but it was invaluable to my OT foundation. The curriculum is designed to help us learn the material, but also pass the NBCOT on the first try. Once again, the staff are amazing; if you want an amazing educational experience, apply to TTUHSC's MOT program.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

I graduated in the undergraduate program at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and now I am currently in the graduate program. That alone should tell you how much I love this school and the speech-pathology program. I am so grateful to have and to have had the opportunity to be a part of such a wonder school with an amazing faculty. I have learned so much and continue to learn more and more each day. The program challenges me to work hard, to never give up, and to be successful!

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2018

I have loved my time at TTUHSC so far. Through the whole application process, they were the school that made me feel the most valued. Their administrative team members were always quick to respond and offered me the best help they could provide. Since arriving here, I have continued to valued by faculty and supervisors. I am challenged but also encouraged to think outside of the box everyday whether it be in my school work or clinic placement. Wreck'em!

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

Coming to TTUHSC for SLP graduate school is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. My professors are some of the most well-known in our field and have done an excellent job helping me adjust to grad school. Our program was one of the first to promote the idea of Inter-professionalism and because of this I have had the chance to attend an anatomy lab in the cadavers lab with the medical students, co-treat an adult with dementia with an OT student, and teach medical students about Aphasia while learning more about the brain from them. The girls in my program are so supportive and we have created such a positive environment. It is obvious our professors want us to succeed by the amount of support and care they pour into us. We have an "open-door" policy, meaning they are always available for us when we need them. I honesty can't imagine attending grad school anywhere else!

Excellent program! There are lots of opportunities to work with different types of patients. The school is connected to a hospital, across the street from a long-term care facility, and has connections to rehab centers and schools in the city of Lubbock.

Super great program! All of the staff is friendly and gets to know you on a personal level. Faculty and staff throughout the HSC truly wants each individual to succeed. The classes are challenging but very fair. The facilities around the HSC rock, including a gym, cafeteria, private and group study rooms, and a 24/7 security. Free tutoring is a plus!!!

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2018

Initially starting in the program I was very nervous. However, I have felt more comfortable as the semester has progressed. I feel that there are many resources that are available to me, and I have a good variety of clients, groups, and styles of therapy that I might not be able to get at another school. I liked that the tuition was very reasonable-- about the same as my undergraduate tuition. I feel that some of the classes are not to the same level as other in their difficulty level, but overall they cover a good range of topics and require a reasonable amount of work.

The SLP program at TTUHSC is amazing. The faculty is very supportive, and they make it their mission to prepare you for the working world as best as they can. One great thing about our program is that we get to interact with other professions. I've only been here a year, but we have gotten to work with nursing students, medical students, OT, and PT. We collaborate with these other professions to help treat standardized patients, which gives us a chance to practice our skills and advocate for our profession to other healthcare professionals. I am proud to be a graduate student in the TTUHSC-SLP program.

A great program! The staff and faculty are all highly respected experts in the field, and they serve as an excellent support system. You know they have your back and care about your entire person. The courses are challenging, but make you so prepared to entire the workforce. Students from this program have had a 100% pass rate on the praxis for 9 years in a row!
