Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

I didn't truly realize how well prepared we were at TWU until I became a working clinician. I'm so thankful for the skills and wide knowledge base I acquired during PT school although that is just the beginning of each TWU student's potential. Not to mention, the faculty is amazing.

Degree: Physical Therapy

As a working clinician, when you mention to people that you graduated from TWU, people already expect that you're great! TWU by far was the most rewarding educational experience I could've asked for. Professors are so open to helping you and your classmates will always be there to help you. The experience that all the professors have is unique and every single one of them is definitely more than qualified to fill your 3 years of grad school with knowledge. Amazing opportunities being in the medical center. So much more that I could say but just know that TWU is known for making excellent clinicians!

I loved Texas Woman's University while I was there and I am very proud to say that I earned my degree from this school. This is the cheapest university to attend and receive your doctorate of physical therapy. This is one of the biggest reliefs now that I am paying back my loans!

TWU Houston is in the middle of the world's largest medical center, providing unparalleled learning opportunities through practical experience at world-class facilities, with world-class mentors. The faculty is extremely well balanced, offering expertise in various fields of physical therapy. Additionally, the faculty is extremely personable, making the learning experience an enjoyable one. Absolutely a life-changing experience.

TWU (Houston campus) offered an absolutely excellent array of hands on experiences throughout the program. Being located in the largest medical center in the world has a huge, and positive, impact on the instruction and the ability to see a wide variety of real-life patient examples. Additionally, there were frequently continuing ed courses or other "extra" learning opportunities offered through the campus or other nearby schools that were offered for free or at a discount for TWU students. Overall, if you're looking for a program that will not only prepare you for your career but also give you an edge with extra learning opportunities and excellent didactic and hands on training, this school is a good fit.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

TWU's physical therapy program is one of the best in the nation--and you can tell from the very first day. The process of getting in is competitive. But once you are accepted--there is no competition with your classmates. We are like a huge family. The faculty and staff are also really amazing and supportive. The curriculum is intense and rigorous, but I feel prepared and excited to enter the professional world thanks to TWU!

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

The following applies to TWU-Houston DPT Program. Pros: #1 Great location. The Texas Medical Center (TMC), allows us to immerse ourselves in diverse physical therapy settings. Everything from wound care serving low-socioeconomic patients to treating patients with neurological disorders at the world-renown Institute for Research and Rehabilitation (TIRR). This translates into great PT experiences before we graduate. Furthermore, the TMC offers a very diverse culture environment, both within the student body and patient population. #2 Tuition affordability. All in all, the program costs around $40K, after parking fees and books and extra supplies are taking into account for the 8-semester program. This makes it a great value for the education received when compared state-wide and nation-wide with other PT programs. #3 Clinical affiliations. With over 400 affiliations across the country, TWU offers clinical rotations in every and any physical therapy setting imaginable in almost every state. This makes it possible to travel back home for a rotation or, maybe travel to a different state for a new and exciting experience. #4 Experienced faculty. Just about every PT professor has a PhD in their field and over ten years of experience. The program emphasizes evidence-based practice. This is great because what is being taught is the best method, currently, to treat various pathologies. As students, we also have the opportunity to volunteer in various research projects during the first year and ultimately be part of a research team during our last 2 years. #5 It's an academically rigorous program. 44 credit hours are taken just within the first 3 semesters. This is by no means an easy feat to accomplish, but the knowledge gained makes it absolutely worth it. Your patients will thank you later. Cons: #1 It's an academically rigorous program. It's no joke, you'll spend more time studying than doing anything else. Your family, friends and significant others will miss you. You'll get to know your classmates more than you would like to, but it's all good because you know you're not alone. #2 Affordability of living. If you plan to live alone in the TMC plan to pay near $1K for a decent place. I have classmates who pay around $600, but live together. Obviously, the further away the less you pay, but plan ahead for traffic and construction. #3 Commuting into the medical center. There is always traffic and construction. I don't live in the medical center, and what should be a 12 minute commute turns out to be almost 30 minutes in the morning. Afternoon rush hour is worse. Riding your bike is always an option, which is what I do, but be warned Houston is not bicycle friendly. Wear your helmet.

Degree: Physical Therapy

TWU is in a great location and has a brand new facility with all the equipment a student could ever need to learn effectively. The program is tough and fast paced but you come out with so much knowledge and more prepared than other programs. I love TWU. I went there for my undergraduate program in Kinesiology and I still love it now.

I received an amazing education at TWU-Houston. I was prepared to start my career as a physical therapist by the most wonderful professors & staff, who all genuinely care about each student being successful. I couldn't have picked a better place to earn my DPT. It was a grueling course load, but I could certainly see the difference in my TWU education vs. students from other schools when out on clinicals. Beautiful campus in the heart of the Texas Medical Center & so much opportunity to learn from the incredible medical institutions nearby. Go to TWU!
