Physical Therapists are licensed healthcare providers who play a crucial role in the diagnosis and treatment of patients of all ages who have medical problems that limit their abilities to perform functional activities in their daily life.
They work to help improve or restore function, reduce pain, and prevent disability. PTs practice in a range of facilities, from hospitals to private practices, home health agencies, schools, sports and fitness centers, and nursing homes.
Success requires good planning, self-direction, excellent time management, and initiative. This website is designed to give you some basic information on preparing for physical therapy school at Hamilton and on the application process. For more information about the PT profession:
