Alternative careers: Physical therapy

If you’ve had enough of TEFL and have decided it’s time to get out, don’t worry too much. There are many alternatives; one of the many alternative career paths that people can take is a move into the field of physical therapy. As soon as you’ve attained a fitting level of physical therapy education, you can move into professions such as therapist, clinician, administrator, educational consultant or even researcher.

Depending on how you choose to progress through your career change into physical therapy education, you might reasonably expect to work in any number of facilities, including clinics, hospitals, nursing homes and private homes, not to mention other medical healthcare facilities. What many of us unhappy with our current lot fail to realize is that you can start your studying now with an online physical therapy degree.

There are several diverse types of therapists who come under the umbrella term, such as physical therapists, including physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, masseurs and this also includes certain areas of occupational therapy. All of these professionals aim to have an effect on joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments; although where they vary is in the philosophies and techniques they employ to achieve this aim. All these things you can start to learn from the act of initiating your education with an online physical therapy degree.

Physical therapy educational programs, in North America for example, offer the disillusioned English teacher many varied opportunities to get started, so you’re bound to find something that suits you. If you’ve already gained a particular level of education from an accredited physical therapy program in the United States, for instance you will notice that that many educational institution offer extended career training up to and including a doctorate of physical therapy. Accreditation is the important thing to look for when making your choice of which institution to study with, because graduates have to attain this formal education in order to become eligible to take the national licensing examination.

    You CAN NOT become a physical therapist by going to school online. The link provided is for a transitional doctorate in physical therapy for people who are ALREADY physical therapists with a bachelor’s or master’s degree. Today, >95% of physical therapy education programs culminate in a doctorate in physical therapy, and are residential (NOT online). The others are master’s. By 2012, all PT programs will be at the doctorate level and will be required to.

  • very truly said!
    Is this program only for licensed PT!
    Can no licensed person study this online program?
