Career outlook

The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that from 2008 to 2018, 26 percent of all new jobs created in the U.S. economy will be in the health care and social assistance industry. This industry is expected to grow by 24 percent, creating four million new jobs.


Physical Therapist

Physical therapists are health care professionals who assist individuals of all ages in maximizing their functional abilities. Physical therapists care directly for patients with musculoskeletal or neuromuscular conditions in order to restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities. They develop and execute treatment plans for their patients utilizing therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, modalities and education to assist individuals in achieving desired functional outcomes.


Pre-Physical Therapist

The Mount’s pre-physical therapy area of study prepares you well for a three-year doctor of physical therapy program.
