Happy to hear that you are looking to helping others.
Why don't you go to your local hospital and volunteer there since you plan to go into the medical field? That would allow you to get to know individuals in your field and talk to them. You can also ask your local PT office. I remember when my wife went, there was a high school student there shadowing the PT asking questions and observing.

Hi Julia!

If you are pursuing physical therapy, I think it would be beneficial to work part-time as a physical therapist aide, or rehab assistant, in a physical therapy practice or in a hospital. You will get hands-on experience working with a PT and see if this is the right field for you. Unlike volunteering, you will be part of a staff and be paid for your time and efforts. It will also help in building connections with physical therapists.

I hope this helps :)
