For my Job Shadowing career I chose a Physical Therapist.
Professional (entry-level) physical therapist education programs currently are offered at 2 degree levels:
- Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Degree
- Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) or Master of Science in Physical Therapy (MSPT) Degree
- This information came from http://www.apta.org/PTEducation/Overview/
The reason I a interested in being a Physical Therapist is because my dad is a Physical Therapist and he says he really enjoys it.
On a daily basis my dad will have a list of patients he needs to see. He will usually go to the patients house and ask them questions about what is hurting them. Then he will get them to do exercises to help them get better.
After he is done seeing all the patients he will write down what the patients weaknesses are and many other things that he his required to write down.
This is a video of what physical therapist do to help there patients get back on there feet again.
