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.
We will be running networking roundtables where students will learn more about a given area of physical therapy. We will have roundtables that represent everything from aquatic, acute, ortho, sport, neuro, peds, etc. The goal is to let you talk with professionals and ask them about the types of patients/conditions they treat, what a typical day is like…so you can get an idea of the various options you can practice in.
