Doctor of Physical Therapy
Physical therapy is a rewarding field, and one that provides a definite return on investment for students. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that job growth in physical therapy will exceed 30% in the next 10 years, making it the 26th fastest growing occupation. More than 56,000 new physical therapy jobs are expected within the next 10 years. Physical therapy is also listed among the Buckeye Top Fifty: 2008-2018 among Ohio’s high-wage occupations in demand.
