Why UNMC's Physical Therapy Program?

“My education at UNMC has been one of the best experiences of my life. Between the great faculty and all my PT classmates, including the classes before me, I’ve found a whole network of friends and support here. It sounds cliché, but they really feel like family. Moving from my home in Lincoln to Omaha was difficult. My first week of school I felt completely overwhelmed, but I went to my advisor and she guided me through it and offered resources. After my first year, I realized how truly caring the faculty are – helping us emotionally and academically. Now, I’m completing my research experience and was able to represent our program at the UNL Red Letter Day. It was wonderful to return to my undergraduate college to share my experience. Today, I feel confident and ready for my career in physical therapy because of the encouragement and support I’ve found here.” – student, DPT Class of 2015
