The PTA program is a fantastic program! The HSC building is a wonderful environment, the computer labs easily
accessible, study areas easy to find & lots of natural light. Working with UWL's PT program was a unique &
positive learning experience. The professors were outstanding & I truly feel prepared to go out into the field
and treat patients.
This is a great program with great professors. I learned so much!!
Amazing program, lots of hard work but worth it. Great instructors who are always there to listen and help.
Very thankful.
I had a wonderful experience with this program. I learned so much that is applicable to getting a PTA job
straight out of school.
I really enjoyed my time here in the Physical Therapist Assistant program. The teachers were all extremely
helpful and went out of their way for each student to ensure that everyone was on the same page. It was a very
well organized and set up to ensure success for all students willing to put in the effort.
