Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

This is a very well rounded program. Some terms seem overwhelming, but are manageable. The information also continues to build and starts to make more sense and becomes more applicable. The professors are all pretty readily available and helpful, in my own opinion. I would recommend this school to others.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

The biggest con is that the school is so expensive. Outside of the costs of the school I absolutely love the school! The teachers are more than willing and available to help out with any questions and make the information applicable and interesting.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is very challenging and offers information and training necessary to begin working as a physical therapist. The opportunity to learn can be utilized to the extent that the student is willing to put in the time and effort and the professors are more than willing to give additional assistance. For the online program, the distance from the school as well as the other students in the program is a disadvantage for group projects and studying.One of the biggest advantages of the online, part-time program in the ability to continue working during the program.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of Saint Augustine is a great school with friendly faculty and staff. The program is academically challenging and offers plenty of practical exams to ensure that you graduate as an excellent clinician. But make no mistake, the program is tough because it is accelerated.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

Attending the University of St. Augustine was the best decision I have made. Its not an easy program by any means. However, the faculty try their best to hit concepts home and are extremely knowledgeable.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program is excellent in manual therapy and to prepare occupational therapy and physical therapy students for clinical experience. The professors are practicing clinicians and it is extremely helpful to have their insight on new and developing treatment techniques and concepts. The school is private and for profit though, and the financial aid and clinical education departments are not very helpful.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

The most salient benefits to me are the accelerated program (2-1/3 years compared to the usual 3 years) and the accessibility of the school to me.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

This is a great school if you are looking for one of these programs for graduate study. It is private so it is a bit pricey compared to other public universities. The educators and staff are highly exceptional.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences' mission is the professional development of health care providers through innovative and individualized education. Having campus locations in St. Augustine, FL, San Marcos, CA and Austin, TX, our entry-level degree offerings include: Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree (DPT), the Master of Occupational Therapy Degree (MOT), the Dual Degree Option (MOT/DPT), the Master of Orthopedic Physician Assistant (OPA) and the Flexible Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree (DPT). We also offer the Post-Professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy Degree, the Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree, the Doctor of Education (EdD), the Doctor of Health Science (DHSc), the Orthopedic Clinical Residency, the Manual Physical Therapy Fellowship Program, and Continuing Education Seminars and Certifications for currently licensed therapists. I feel that our Doctorate PT program has an inclusive learning model of many "schools of thought" with a major focus on orthopedic and neurological physical therapy. It is a great school to learn about manual physical therapy. We learn to identify the tissue specific impairment so that we as PTs can treat the dysfunction/impairment rather than the pain. With the knowledge and the confidence to use patient education to direct our patients to healthier and more functional living.
