I just finished up my first week at an Orthopedic Outpatient Hospital PT center near my University. I loved it. I've shadowed physicians before and, as remarkable as modern medicine is, there is just something about Physical Therapy that seems so active and hearing the stories about the patients is a lot of fun. What is even more rewarding is hearing about patients who lost almost all of their muscle mass and seeing their result of 3 months and what they are able to do. Although the salary is a huge issue with this profession, the satisfaction is high. I worked with a lady who had a MS in PT, and a student who was finishing his clinical for DPT, both of which really enjoyed their position.
