CHS Physical Therapy
Lexington Campus Class of 2015
Dear Prospective Physical Therapy Student,
As members of the physical therapy class of 2015 we are excited that you are exploring the opportunities that the University of Kentucky has to offer through our physical therapy program. As one of the top physical therapy schools in the nation, we are all very proud and honored to be apart of this wonderful and rewarding program. UK does a wonderful job of transitioning its student from the undergraduate to graduate level with its mentorship program and highly trained and experienced faculty and staff, who are, as far as we are concerned, some of the best in the business. If you asked anyone in our class I’m sure one of the first things they would tell you that makes our program so unique and amazing is our outstanding faculty who guides us each and every day academically.
However, our program here at UK is much more than top tier academics. Believe it or not, we are all able to have a fun and exciting life outside of PT school that enriches our graduate experience beyond the academic level. Many of us are involved in intramural sports year round. As a class, we have many social activities every semester and make time for multiple community service opportunities such as serving breakfast to the homeless downtown and volunteering at God’s Food Pantry. One unique experience students are able to have here at UK is the service opportunity to work at our very own Samaritan’s Touch Student PT Clinic. Every Tuesday and Thursday of the week students are able to receive hands on experience with patients who otherwise would not be able to receive proper care. We have many other wonderful opportunities within our program and the surrounding area such as the annual Run For Your Life 5k, horse racing at Keeneland Horse Park, local and national physical therapy symposia, annual medical mission trips to Ecuador, and many more!
The physical therapy program at UK will challenge you in ways you have never been challenged before and will no doubt bring you to the state of excellence that all of our graduates reach after the three-year program. On top of that you will make long lasting friendships with classmates, professors, and members of other programs within the College of Health Sciences. We wish you well in your endeavors as you explore the field of PT and thank you for looking into our program. Please feel free to check out the rest of the website pages for more information.
