Physical Therapy—What is it?
Physical Therapists diagnose and treat patients with limited movement or mobility due to medical conditions,
illness or injury. They evaluate physical problems and develop treatment plans to help reduce pain, restore
function or movement, and/or resolve the dysfunctional condition to achieve optimum physical functioning.
Areas of Study in Physical Therapy: Neuroscience, Neuroanatomy, Biophysics, Pathology, Pharmacology,
Radiology, Cardiopulmonary Therapy, Orthopedic Evaluation, Physical Intervention and Rehabilitation,
Therapeutic Exercise, Ambulatory function, Pediatrics, Geriatrics, Leadership and Management, Health Care
Policy, Professional and Medical Ethics and Clinical Practice.

Career Opportunities—What can I do with a Graduate Degree in Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapists develop strong critical thinking, assessment, problem solving, communication and technical
skills applicable to a number of health care settings. In addition to providing direct patient care, Physical
Therapists consult with other health care providers, conduct research, teach courses, promote wellness, develop
public policy and provide leadership in the health care field.
Potential employers include: Hospitals, Schools, Rehabilitation Centers, Private Clinics, Nursing Homes, Public
Schools, Colleges and Universities and Government Agencies. For more, please visit career information and

Transfer Possibilities—Where can I transfer?
The AA—DTA makes it possible for students to transfer to a number of public and private colleges and universities
in the U.S. with junior standing. Students can transfer to any college/university to complete a bachelor’s degree
before applying to P.T. graduate programs. Washington State institutions with Physical Therapy programs are
listed below.

Physical Therapy Planning Guide—2011–2012 | Associate in Arts—Direct Transfer Agreement (AA—DTA)
     The AA—DTA, known as the direct transfer degree, is an agreement between Washington State community colleges and baccalaureate
     institutions. The AA—DTA transfers as a package to most baccalaureate colleges and universities in Washington, satisfying most, if not all,
     of the lower division general education requirements and granting junior standing; it does not guarantee admission. The AA—DTA requires
     90 quarter credits in college-level courses numbered 100 or above with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. In addition, this transfer guide
     identifies specific courses to take within the degree to help students prepare for entrance into baccalaureate degree programs.
     See the reverse side for a complete listing of courses that fulfill the general education and distribution requirements.
