In conclusion, I would like to say that no matter what branch of physical therapy you go into, it promises a promising career that will never cease to amaze you. No matter what field, you will have to educate the people on ways to prevent injuries. Education is half of your battle. On the same token though, be prepared to learn things continuously. There will always be something new to learn.

I have written this guide as part of my graduation project. Hopefully, not only do I pass, but also that I have helped you determine if you want to become a physical therapist or not. If you do, I hope this guide was filled with enough information to help you along the way. Before I leave you, I am just going to recap some of the things in the guide.

Personal qualifications are just as important, if not more important than your academic qualifications. Make sure you are ready for a challenging career. By patient, confident (not too confident that you ignore opportunities to better yourself), creative, and enjoy talking to people. If you can handle that, you will go far.

You should start preparing for your career in high school. If classes like biology, physics, chemistry, anatomy, mathematics, english, and psychology interest you, you are well on your way to becoming a physical therapist. Even if they don’t, if you are determined to become a physical therapist, keep working at it, and you will succeed.

I cannot stress this next part enough. Interns, interns, interns. Make sure that you are an intern for as many different employers as possible. Every new one is a new experience, and can help you gain experience in the work force. They can help you determine what direction you want to go in life, or at the very least get you a few connections that will help you succeed in life.

Choosing the right college is basically based on your personal preferences. Some things you’ll need to take into account are location, size, whether you want a public school or a private one, cost, and your GPA and test scores will influence your chances.

There are many promising branches to the physical therapy field. It all depends on where your strong points are and who you want to help. Perhaps you want to specialize in treating people’s bones? Orthopedic physical therapy could be for you. Or maybe assisting the elderly by becoming a geriatric therapist? Perhaps you want to become a neurological therapist and help people recover from potentially debilitating neurological diseases. Whatever you are looking for, the physical therapy field has it all.

So get out there, and go help someone by participating in this wonderful career.
