This, I’m sure, is the way many young people become interested in physical therapy. It clicked for me because a physical therapist was the first career I could picture myself as, no other career choice I could so easily see myself doing. So, after I had this revelation I started to pursue higher education in the health sciences and tried to become more familiar with the rehab environment. At this point I started to reach out to physical therapists in my area and observe their workday.
In this paper, I will discuss my interview with Physical Therapist, Sandy Seiler. About how she was inspired to become a Physical Therapy at a young age by a mentor and what she did to learn more about the field. Seiler’s journey through grad school and what she suggest to make it through college. She also talks about her experience as a Physical Therapist and what she is seeing change in the field. Along with her encouragement for college students working to become a Physical Therapist.
Seiler went on to expand about her journey to become a Physical Therapist and to enter into Physical Therapy grad school. She reflected back to her college years and encouraged me to fully embrace the study of Physical Therapy and to get in the habit of staying organized early on. Going through college she describes her education in Physical Therapy as exciting, over whelming and exhausting all at the same time. The main thing that helped her was her eagerness to learn more and the motivation given to her. When she started working as a Physical Therapist she felt well prepared because of her clinical hours she had during college.
I am writing this letter on behalf of Quentin Goodman, an incoming high school senior who is looking to volunteer at NYU Langone Medical Center, Center for Musculoskeletal Care (CMC), Physical Therapy Department located on 333 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016. NYU CMC Physical Therapy Supervisor, Dr. James Koo is a professional and personal friend of mine and he gave Quentin your contact information and a tour of the clinic. The reason Quentin wants to become a physical therapist is because his sister, Camille, has had several surgeries when she was younger. He was able to have a first-hand look at how much a physical therapist could impact someone’s life. Camille had to undergo yet another surgery in the summer of 2016, and Quentin was again able to see how different her life would have been without the help of physical therapy.

You could go and work at a nursing home, a hospital, an orthopedic facility, or you could even have your own place for physical therapy (Shmoop: Odds of Getting). 6.My plan of advancement for whenever I become a physical therapist is to get hired at a physical therapy facility, get some experience, and then go and start a physical therapy center somewhere else. I think I would either have to go back to college to take some business courses or take them whenever I get my degree. 14.The job outlook for physical therapy is pretty impressive.
During my 7th and 8th grade year of junior high school, I began babysitting my little cousinson weekends. I would also get paid for watching them. From then I knew what I wanted to study when I graduate high school, which is pediactrics. As a nurse I want to help children specifically.
Evelyn Gonzalez a colleague of mine, just earned a degree in kinesiology. She now uses her degree to provide proper physical therapy for athletes. She is using the knowledge she gained throughout college to help athletes of all levels and sports get back to where they once were.

The job title I will hold will be PTA (physical therapy assistant). Typically a PTA will want to wear comfortable shoes, as they are on their feet all day long. So I would see myself wearing something like sneakers with good support. Also depending how where I work would depend on what clothes I would wear. Some places have a dress code, as in specific scrubs they want you to wear, but if I'm working with kids I hope I get to wear cute and fun scrubs!
