Jemima A.’s Answer

I suggest you do more research .
Know the job description of these
types of therapist.
Then also, check if it is taught in your country i.e if it is offered at university level.
Also, check if it is lucrative in your country i.e the job shortage list.

For instance, physiotherapist are more common in my country. So those going for it here are useful.

I hope this helps Christian

Donna’s Answer

In the United States, there are different kinds of therapist that comprise a rehabilitation team--physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech pathologist and sometimes, audiologist. I recommend you look at the websites for each of those professional organizations (e.g. physical therapy=APTA.org) and read about the work each team member does with patients to see what may interest you. I reinforce the former answer in that you would need to see if a certain type of therapist training you may be interested in is available in your country and if there is a need (i.e. can you get a job at graduation?).

My response is limited to rehab team therapists but there are mental health therapists/counselors as well and respiratory therapists.
Do more homework and see what appeals!
