Speed Dating

What options are available to you in the profession? Learn how diverse the field of physical therapy is and meet with representatives from the main practice areas of physical therapy to talk about what takes place in aquatics, peds, acute care, sports, cardio pulmonary, neuro, women's health, outpatient, oncology, home care, early intervention, art therapy, dry needling, dance therapy, and more.

Each speed dater will have their business card with them so in addition to learning about the various areas of the profession you can also come away with a mentor.

Connecting with Future Employers - Speed Daters will be representatives from DC and MD companies. From outpatient, hospital based to private practice. Meet with potential employers and bring your resume with you.
