The Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy is a program that develops students to be experts in movement. There are different titles such as physical therapist, physiotherapist or kinesiologist, which are all part of the same profession. Physical therapists provide services that promote, maintain and restore people’s maximum movement and functional ability. They can help people at any stage of life, when movement and function are threatened by ageing, injury, diseases, disorders, conditions or environmental factors.
Graduates of the BSPT program who pass the licensure examination can become general clinical practitioners, educators, managers of their own practice, researchers, community-based therapists and advocates of PT practice and functional movement for health.
Physical therapists help people maximize their quality of life, looking at physical, psychological, emotional and social well-being. They work in the health spheres of promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention, habilitation and rehabilitation. With experience and qualifications, physical therapists can apply to work in countries that offer attractive compensation like the USA, Middle East and some countries in Europe and Africa.
