Getting "Physical" with Math and Science


Physical Therapy Workshop - Student Participant

Which math and science courses should I take in high school to prepare for a career as an occupational therapist, a physical therapist or as a physical therapist assistant? How will geometry, anatomy, and physics apply when treating an adult with a total knee replacement or a child with spina bifida? We'll answer these questions and help you test your strength, balance, and ability to maneuver a manual wheelchair.
