What training do you need to be a physical therapist?

May19th 2020

Currently physical therapy training includes four years of undergraduate education, often in a science or health-related field and three years of graduate school. Physical therapists take a national board exam and are licensed in the state in which they practice. A small number of physical therapists (11% nationally) go further to complete specialist training as a board-certified clinical specialist.

Our team at ReQuest Physical Therapy includes several Doctors of Physical Therapy, a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), and therapists who are board certified in orthopedic and sports physical therapy.
