I want to thank Ryan Franco from FindTheBest website for sharing with me a page to assist prospective students in finding a physical therapy school that best fits them. This is definitely a resourceful website to share with your colleagues (PTAs, techs, etc) and even volunteers who are observing you to determine if physical therapy is a profession he/she would like. The following is provided by Ryan:
Today we want to show off a new tool via FindTheBest that can help students who are considering pursuing a career in Physical Therapy research their options. Their mission is to grab all the unorganized data out there, strip it of it’s marketing content, and display it in a consumer friendly format to make research and decisions easier. They have recently built up a Comprehensive Physical Therapy Schools comparison in hopes to streamline the research process of finding Physical Therapy programs that work best for you. The comparison is easily filterable by their Innovative Smart Rank, location, 1st try license exam pass rate, tuition, average GPA, and more.Furthermore, the comparison has some neat features like comparing programs side by side when you’ve reached the final steps of your decision process. So whether or not you are excited to apply or you’ve been on the fence, their free comparison tool can help out to make the application process that much more efficient.
