Physical Therapy Programs and Schools

Employment of physical therapists is expected to grow by 30 percent from 2008 to 2018, much faster than the average for all occupations. The increasing elderly population will drive growth in the demand for physical therapy services. There are several types of degrees offered in the field of physical therapy. Earlier this profession was pursued as a bachelor's degree. However, around the end of the 1990's, the bachelor's degree in physical therapy was slowly replaced by master's and doctorate physical therapy degrees. Today, there are several variations.
