Students, public invited to learn about physical therapy

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for physical therapists is expected to outpace most other occupations through 2014. Pittsburg State University students and others in the community who are thinking about careers in physical therapy are invited to the annual Pre-Physical Therapy Program orientation and open house from 3-6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 24.

The event begins at 3 p.m. with a student orientation in 102 Yates Hall. From 4:30-6:30 p.m., the Department of Biology will host an open house on the second floor of Heckert-Wells Hall. Representatives from physical therapy programs at Wichita State University and Rockhurst University are scheduled to attend the open house.

Pittsburg State University's pre-professional program in physical therapy includes those courses needed to qualify for a bachelor of science degree in biology and those needed for admission into master's degree programs in physical therapy at other universities, including the University of Kansas and Wichita State University.
