I studied Exercise Physiology and Exercise Science at university and loved it, but never went on to PT school afterwards. At 35, I'm thinking of finally going to PT school after a few successful but not tremendously rewarding careers. I'd begin an affordable state program at 37. Any other folks who jumped into PT as a 30's or 40's career change? I feel old for some reason but I know I shouldn't. Any courses I should retake over others? Anatomy, Physics, Psych etc..
Lastly, I'm curious to know more about what some PT's feel about the future of the profession with some form of universal health care on the horizon. Perhaps someone might point me to a website or publication whereby I can better educate myself on the issues (I've looked at the APTA site). I assume that PT shortages will continue, but salaries will likely fall or remain stagnant? I'm not in this to get rich, but at 35 I do worry about wages decreasing. I'm somewhat of an entreprenuer so owning my own clinic is a likely goal.
