Pretty much all programs at Sargent College rank top 25 in the world. Studying in Boston really makes the program here a much fuller experience, because you're able to get involved in a lot of the research opportunities, hospitals, and lots of other clinics and health care practices that are in Boston, very connected to the college.

Boston is absolutely a hub for the health care industry. It's one of the biggest areas in the United States, and it's one of the main industries in Boston. Sargent College really has a small college type of feel within the larger Boston University. It allows you to focus on what you're doing and be among a group of peers that's focused on what you want to do as well.

The faculty here has an absolutely exceptional record of teaching. They are really committed to their students and are passionate about what they're doing, and want their students to be passionate about what they're doing. And are receiving amazing grants for research all the time.

It's really exciting to study at a top rank health and rehabilitation college. Sargent College offers a lot of hands on experience. That's one of the major reasons why I chose it. There's some great state of the art labs that are available for research for all students in Sargent.

In one of my first few classes, we got to observe a therapy session through double sided glass. Getting to view a therapy session for adults who had strokes was really, really rewarding because it puts into context the progress that people can make with your help.
