Physical Therapists

High School

While you are in high school you can begin to prepare for this career by taking college preparatory classes, preferably advanced placement or honors courses to be a more competitive applicant. Your course work should include biology, chemistry, physics, health, and mathematics. Because so much of this work involves direct contact with clients, you should improve your people skills as well as your communication skills by taking psychology, sociology, and English classes.
