Derek Fenwick, PT, DPT, GCS and Director of Professional development for Infinity Rehab wrote an insightful article for the American Physical Therapy Association’s (APTA) The Pulse. The article is an open letter to future physical therapists and physical therapist assistants about making the choice to enter a profession dedicated to helping people get back to the things they love every day.
Dear future colleagues,
First off, you have chosen a great career. Physical therapy has as much diversity in career paths as any profession in health care. You are in for a great life ahead of you. I’ve learned a lot in the 12 years since I began practicing as a PT.
