Danielle’s Answer

In order to become a Physical Therapist you must complete a Bachelors degree most likely in a medical based major such as Kinesiology, Biology, etc. Make sure that you take all of the appropriate prerequisite courses required by whichever Physical Therapy programs you plan to apply for. Following the Bachelors degree, you must complete a three year Physical Therapy Doctorate Program. The three years will include a mixture of academic and clinical experiences. Completion of the Doctorate Program means that you can sit for the national licensure exam and once you pass that exam you are a licensed physical therapist that can practice in a variety of settings including pediatrics. I hope this helps! It is a long road, but it is worth it!
