Individuals who wish to pursue careers as physical therapists may have excellent job opportunities, as overall employment of these professionals is expected to increase over the next several years, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports. Those who have an interest in this field may benefit from enrolling in Sacred Heart University in Connecticut.
Antonio Reale, an alumnus of the school, is the organizational physical therapist for the San Francisco Giants, the university reports. Reale - who earned a bachelor's degree in exercise science and a master's degree in physical therapy (PT), both from Sacred Heart - is at his "dream job" with the World Series-winning Giants, according to the school.
"I thought Sacred Heart was a great university, not too small and not too big," he said, the university reports. "It had small classrooms, which made for a great learning environment, and was always expanding while I was there. The PT department was second to none with great professors."
He added that "their 'problem-based' learning format really prepares you for the real world in our field."
Reale had been working as a site coordinator for HealthSouth, managing two clinics in Connecticut, when his mentor "caught wind of an opening with the Giants," he told the school.
