Can anyone share their experience with HBCU physical therapy programs?

I'm aiming to apply for a physical therapy program at an HBCU and would like to hear from anyone who’s gone through it. What was your experience like and how well did the program prepare you for your career?

Although I haven't gone through a physical therapy program at an HBCU myself, I have a close friend who attended one and they frequently share their experiences with me. They enjoyed the personalized attention and smaller class sizes that they feel contributed to a more positive and effective learning experience. Being in an HBCU environment, they appreciated the strong sense of community and support among the students, faculty, and staff.

In terms of preparation for their career, they often mention how their curriculum was quite comprehensive, covering a wide range of subjects related to physical therapy and healthcare. They had the opportunity to participate in practical field experiences, allowing them to apply what they learned in the classroom to real-world settings. This hands-on experience was invaluable to their career development.

Overall, their experience seems to have been a positive one, and they felt adequately prepared for their career as a physical therapist after graduation. As you research specific HBCUs and their physical therapy programs, you may want to consider reaching out to current students or alumni for more first-hand accounts of their experiences.
