Info for Prospective Students
Are you an intelligent, motivated individual who has an interest in doing good things with and for others?
Check the menu items to the left and links to the right for information about Physical Therapy and some aspects of our PT program.
For freshman entry to the physical therapy major, a minimum of three years of high school mathematics and one year each of biology and chemistry are required for admission. In addition, one year of physics is strongly recommended. Students should have some knowledge of the profession, such as volunteer experience or employment.
The IC PT faculty enjoy meeting with prospective or accepted students and families to discuss our program. If you are planning to come to Ithaca, feel free to ask an Admissions Office advisor to schedule an appointment.
Accepted students should also set up an account with myIthaca so you can communicate with other accepted students. Several faculty also log on to check and respond to questions.
Money Magazine has once again listed physical therapy in its 2011 "Best Jobs" issue.
Physical therapists ranked second out of 100, moving up two spots from the fourth ranking in 2010 and the seventh position the year before.
