Physical therapists help improve the capabilities of people who have been in accidents or have disabling conditions as a result of illnesses ranging from arthritis to heart disease and sports injuries. The most common path followed by Loras students interested in becoming Physical Therapists is to take the courses required for a Sports Science major on the P.T. track. Admission to P.T. School requires a strong science background, as well as over 1000 hours of patient- and modality-contact experience as a P.T. Aide in a Physical Therapy clinic. Students majoring in Athletic Training or Biology have been successful in gaining admission as well.
