Guillermo Alejandro Avalos

I selected Ohio State University because they have one of the best physical therapy program. They are ranked number 17 compared to all the other schools. 89.5% of students graduate from their physical therapy program.                                                                                                                                        They have over 50 years of experience preparing for students for a successful career in physical therapy. They as well have a well-trained faculty an excellent health-care facilities, and a network of supportive alumni.

I want to become a physical therapist because I enjoy helping people and fascinated on how the human body can get injured and how it heals. The main reason I want to become a physical therapist is because I want to be the first person in my family to get a PhD. Becoming a physical therapist is my long term goal in life because this is a hard goal to achieve.

Physical therapists help people who have been sick or injured get back to a healthy life. They also help people with permanent disabilities accomplish the highest possible level of physical function. Their patients include people who have sports-related injuries, or who have been through serious car accidents.

In order to become a physical therapist, you must earn a master’s or doctoral degree from an accredited physical therapy education program, and then pass a licensing exam.

In this profession you usually earn around $52,000 to $106,000 a year. You get paid hourly but it depends on your experience.Level of Experience Hourly Annual Entry Wage$35.86 $74,580,Median Wage $42.04$87,450,Experienced Wage $50.70$105,460 these are the hourly and yearly salaries

Most employers provide full-time physical therapists with benefits such as paid vacations, sick leave, health insurance, and retirement programs. But if you are self employed you have to provide your own benefits
