Health Science: Pre-Physical Therapy Option

Physical therapists work in hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, schools, rehabilitation centers, and other settings to evaluate physical problems and administer therapeutic treatments that help patients increase their flexibility and range of motion in order to improve overall physical functioning and health.

Choosing the pre-physical therapy option for your health science degree will help prepare you for admission to a graduate program offering the doctorate in physical therapy (DPT) which is required before you can become a licensed physical therapist.
