Physical Therapy


Physical Therapy Advisement is for students interested in becoming a practicing physical therapist. Physical therapists (PTs) provide services that help restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of patients with injuries or disease. We help students determine if becoming a PT is right for them. Students will learn about physical therapy schools and the required preparation.

We assist students in planning necessary classes. We help students determine if they need to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and assist them in preparation. We begin students down the path of shadowing and gaining clinical experience in a PT practice. Additionally, we counsel about preparation specifics such as community service, scientific research, letters of recommendation, and any other extracurricular activities that will improve students' chances of gaining admission to PA school.

We are available to all students regardless of major. We strongly advise students to come in and meet with our advisors to help guide you through your undergraduate experience. Please click below to see the available handouts.
