Kendrick’s Answer

I would recommend speaking with the department counselor at whichever school that you are interested in attending and applying too. Different universities may require different prerequisites to apply to their physical therapy program. Mostly all programs will require the classes mentioned by the previous therapist. Regardless of the school, I would suggest taking a public speaking class. Physical therapist spend numerous hours educating and assessing which requires one to be verbal. You must be able to speak clear and concise.

Anatomy, Physiology, kinesiology, pathology, Healthcare systems, physics, therapeutic exercise and modalities, business and report writing, documentation basics. Advanced training may include English/ Spanish speaking, sports medicine, geriatrics, bariatrics, nuero. Physical therapists must go into a situation with varying degrees of a history and physical available with ability to design a plan of care to increase level of function. The case mix is very diverse, so you must be well rounded. Clinical experience should be considered before going into this field. Being a physical therapy aide, scheduler, or unpaid internship may be good experience before pushing through a degree program. Physical therapists do MOSTLY evals and assistants do treatments. Expect to do a lot of documentation as a PT.
