The School of Physical Therapy is a leader in graduate education and is dedicated to providing educational experiences which enable each student to become a valued physical therapy practitioner, researcher and leader in an ever-changing, complex health care environment.
There’s never been a better time to be a physical therapist as PTs remain in high demand. Physical therapists may be generalists or specialists in various areas of patient care such as orthopedics, neurologic, sports medicine, pediatrics, geriatrics, women’s health or long-term rehabilitation. Those who pursue the highest degree in physical therapy may go on to lead valuable research teams or teach tomorrow's PTs.
Physical Therapists must have excellent observational, problem-solving, and communication skills and the ability to apply these skills when interacting with patients and other health care professionals. Possessing good psychomotor skills and spatial relationship abilities are special strengths for practicing physical therapy.
