Meet Our Students & Alumni

“I feel like because their program teaches us a lot of problem solving and analyzing, rather than just giving us the answer of how to treat a patient, they make us kind of problem solve about it and come up with our own answer, so that was a big part, a huge help in Jamaica, because it's so different from a typical physical therapy environment.”
