    * The Physical Therapy Program provides students with diverse clinical experiences across the US and various opportunities to interact with the community. In addition, students have several on-campus integrated clinical experiences.

    * Students enjoy a small student to faculty ratio.

    * The Physical Therapy Faculty are readily accessible to their students and are committed to their success.

    * Physical therapy students and faculty are active members of the American Physical Therapy Association and the Ohio Physical Therapy Association.

    * Employers and clinical instructors state the University’s physical therapy students and graduates demonstrate a high degree of professionalism and preparedness.

    * The Physical Therapy Program values its extensive ties with the regional healthcare community including Mother Margaret Hall, Bayley, and Children’s Hospital, among others.


    * "I attribute much of my success as a therapist to my education from The Mount. Without the personal guidance of every faculty member, the well-constructed curriculum, or the constantly challenging course load I would not have had a knowledge or confidence to dive into the world of pediatric physical therapy. I believe it was the DPT program at The Mount that showed me that hard work pays off, and that countless hours of study for 3 years meant a lifetime of joy.I feel confident that every DPT student at The Mount has an advantage when it comes to starting out as a new graduate and helping to make their patient’s lives better!"

    * "My experience at the Mount as a PT student was rewarding because of the dedicated talented faculty and the diverse clinical education opportunities I was afforded. I now manage a busy outpatient orthopedic practice and would not be able to do so if it was not for the strong foundation I received from the orthopedic experts on the Mount's faculty. The high expectations of professionalism and preparedness that were instilled in me by the Mount PT program are things I still carry with me today."

    * "The Physical Therapy Program at the Mount has provided me opportunities to learn not only through academics but also through leadership roles in SPTA and hands-on experience with "real" patients. With this dynamic education I have received, I feel prepared to accept any challenge I am presented with in the future."

    * "I like the small classes, the help offered by the registration staff and the professors who are passionate about their subject. I like the campus too—even strangers greet you as you pass them in the hall."

    * "We will be able to apply what we learn in a real-life patient setting, while gaining valuable hands-on experience treating patients. I believe the Mount makes it a priority to teach professionalism through experience."

    * "Upon graduation, I gained a greater appreciation for my education when I entered the workforce. As an entry level therapist my critical thinking and reasoning skills were beyond my experience level, and were grounded in a sound knowledge base."
