EVIT School of Health Sciences


EVIT Physical Therapy students & teacher

Physical therapist technicians and chiropractic assistants help doctors in the treatment and diagnosis of people with medical conditions and functionally-limiting injuries. This is a rigorous academic course that requires a high level of independent study. 

Qualified students will participate in job shadowing and/or internships in physical therapy offices or clinics. Shadowing and/or interning require reliable transportation at the sole responsibility of the student. Flexible hours may be required depending upon the availability of clinical sites.
