Doc’s Answer

Manar you probably already know what fundamental skills are needed to be a Physical Therapist.

√ A passion for helping people
√ The commitment to rehabilitate
√ Helping maintain and develop a patient’s best possible physical health

PHYSICAL THERAPY EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS IS 8 YEARS

BACHELOR'S DEGREE – 4 YEARS – Related bachelor's degree programs for undergraduates include pre-physical therapy, athletic training, biology or health science. As an undergraduate, students take courses that fulfill requirements to enroll in physical therapy graduate school, such as biology, chemistry, physics and physiology. A degree program in physical therapist assisting can also prepare students for a graduate degree program.

PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION – 3 YEARS – A post-graduate Doctor of Physical Therapy degree is also required and qualifies the graduate to practice as a general physical therapist. Doctor of physical therapy programs usually take 3 years to complete with some providing a specialization track in sports medicine. Physical therapists must be licensed and that requirements may vary from state to state. Typical requirements include completion of an accredited degree program and passing the National Physical Therapy Exam.

RESIDENCY – 1 YEAR –Physical therapists can specialize in sports medicine and acquire clinical experience in the field through a residency in sports physical therapy. Residents are practicing physical therapists who wish to expand their competencies in sports medicine. The programs typically last about a year and teach participants to prevent, assess and treat sports injuries.

My suggestion would be make it a point to read one piece of literature very day on the change needs in Physical Therapy.

Good Luck Manar
