Maryann’s Answer


In addition to compassion, active listening, critical thinking. You also need patience, fast problem solving, working with a team, give good instructions, understand physical and psychological problems and time management.
Depending on your specialty different settings might need other skills. Like creativity in home setting with elders or kids.

Hope this helps

Depends if you mean what skills needed to get into PT school or what you need after you get your PT degree as a new graduate.
