Hi! I would definitely recommend you visiting a physical therapy clinic you are able to walk into a private clinic and ask if you can shadow a physical therapist. You are able to meet with new graduates that just entered into the field at the clinic as well.

Kimberly’s Answer

You are choosing a career that has success built on not just the mechanics of knowing the trade but also on relationships, hone this part of your skill set and never underestimate the power of being likeable and trustworthy. People choose to work with people they like, especially when it comes to areas that can be more personal like medicine and therapy. Toastmasters is a great organization if you are more introverted to learn how to communicate and express yourself -- but it is also fantastic for extroverts to focus their delivery and appeal to everyone. Think about the doctors and nurses, coaches, teachers etc that are more kind, listen, engage, make you feel comfortable and heard. Those are the people you want to see again and trust. This will be key to your success anywhere but also very much in your chosen field. And have a back up because this area is very crowded with applicants. Good Luck!
