Although I do not have a background in Physical Therapy I do have extensive experience in counseling. If you have not done so then here are my recommendations BEFORE you start down this path.
- Volunteer at rehab centers (children and elderly) to see if the work is what you want.
- Meet with current PT students and find out their likes/dislikes of the program
- Meet with people at various stages of their career and find out their likes/dislikes of the program
- Don't only look at the initial services/job you would perform, look at what the potential is for future growth within the field for management or teaching
These are a few things to look at before jumping into the field.
