Career Opportunities for Physical Therapists

Physical therapists have the unique opportunity to work in a variety of settings.

They have transferable skills that serve as a good base point for any desired career path. With experience and further education, physical therapists can take their improved skills to a new career. Regardless of the career path chosen, it is essential for PTs to have an active individual physical therapy liability insurance policy. Also known as physical therapy malpractice insurance, CM&F’s PT professional liability insurance offers PTs the freedom and safety to work in a variety of settings without fear of litigation consequences.

How does a physical therapist learn more about career opportunities?


To learn about new career opportunities, physical therapists need to first talk to their employer. Many workplaces offer continuing education benefits for their employees. As a physical therapist, you should take full advantage of those opportunities. If an area of work interests you, you should speak to your employer about the steps needed to make the leap into a new career opportunity. Some of these professions can be attained simply by going through a certification program or taking higher education courses.

Pursuing a new career or field can have a significant impact on your work life. Not only could you see a potential pay raise, but you will have the opportunity to work in a field for which you have grown a passion.
