Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Michigan Flint has a great doctorate of physical therapy program. The staff are very knowledgeable, passionate, and they truly care about student success. The only potential con might be that they have a higher student to instructor ratio than other similar programs. However, this translates to slightly lower tuition costs.

Pursuing a graduate degree online is much harder than what most people would think. At UM Flint, the professors have made it a point that we learn the course material well and, since everything is online, the only way to evaluate that will be on written coursework, whether it be submitted papers or the Blackboard Discussions which is a good substitute for classroom participation. Due to the amount of coursework to be done, it can be quite demanding and it is a challenge for the student to make sure that he/she manage his/her time well. The professors are very understanding of the fact that we, the students, are all working full time and also have families so they have been very reasonable enough with their deadlines and, if given fair warning, have been very flexible enough to accommodate "life" as we know it. Overall, it has been a very good experience for me and I am looking forward to graduation and finally meeting my professors face to face!

We are being taught by current physical therapists that bring their expertise into the classroom. However, the program is constantly changing, which creates communication problems between the students and faculty.

While there are numerous pros of this program, the most notable is the faculty. Not only is their knowledge level of physical therapy deep and diverse, they also truly care about each student and their personal development.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Overall, I have been very satisfied with the University of Michigan Flint Physical Therapy program. A big pro of the program is that all of the faculty are very experienced in the clinic. When they teach material they do a very good job of relating the material to something that they saw practicing out in the clinic, which makes learning much easier. The program also does a good job of teaching many aspects of the physical therapy field so that when students graduate they can be competent at a job in any type of setting. A con is that while many of the professors are very good at returning emails and working with students, there are a few that take a long time to respond or sometime don't respond at all. Another con is that the program's system for assigning clinical rotations is not the best. I had several classmates who were assigned to a clinic that had cancelled their affiliation with the school or had extra requirements (i.e. "student must had such and such vaccinations) that were not specified beforehand when students were selecting their clinical rotation sites.

Being at the University of Michigan-Flint is an amazing accomplishment. The benefits include the amazing faculty and networking available to our disposal. The downfall is the location being in Flint, MI, a city with a very high crime rate. It distracts you from your learning when you are worried about your safety.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Excellent faculty and staff that encourage an atmosphere for both personal and professional growth. Excellent facilities that have up-to-date technology in the physical therapy field. The program is constantly evolving, and grows in unison with the physical therapy profession as new research and frameworks are established. Cons: Large class size can be a hindrance with less emphasis being placed on individual growth.

The Physical Therapy program at the University of Michigan-Flint is a highly competitive program in the progressive field of physical therapy. Priding ourselves on the University of Michigan standard, we strive for excellence in all aspects in and out of the classroom. Faculty are highly engaging and supporting, pushing students to reach their full potential while providing a collegial relationship with students. Opportunities for graduate assistantships are very accessible, allowing students to gain experience in research and presentations outside of the classroom. I am proud to call myself a student of this program and will promote this University and program without reservation throughout my career.

I believe that my program is one of a high standard. It gets you exposed to clinical situations right away, and the professors are very knowledgeable. However, the one con I've experienced is that the professors are not very good at communicating with each other. Other than that it is a great program!
