Drew’s Answer

I would say that the best school is the one you get accepted to! PT school is focused on giving you the foundational knowledge you need to practice safely and pass you national exam for your license. The real learning takes place once you are out of school and start practicing! You can tailor your education to your patient population, towards improving your skill set, or pursue areas of the profession that interest you.
Thank you comment icon Agreed! I would additionally recommend (if you have a choice of schools) whichever will allow you to go into the least amount of debt! At the end of the day, everyone is held to the same standards and takes the same licensing exam. Morgan Kolencherry

Traci’s Answer

Hi Jessica,

Great question. The best schools for Physical Therapy is the one that meets your requirements in terms of what you would like to gain from graduate school. All graduate schools will provide you with the education needed to be a great Physical Therapist, but make sure that the school you select aligns with your goals as well. Do you want to be able to have "hands on" training, is the school affiliated with a hospital, etc.? Do your research on schools, but also think about what you would like a program to offer you.

Hope this helps.
