question about a career in physical therapy?
I'm very interested in going into this field....which type of PT makes the most money? is it possible for the salary to exceed 100k?

I'm in school for pt right now.
Currently PT's make about 60-80 k a year.
usually geriatric and skilled nursing facility pt's make the most money because those settings are 'less desirable' than say outpatient or a rehab hospital.
it is possible to exceed 100k by becoming your own boss, or running a clinic, or becoming a supervisor, etc. But making over 100 K takes a lot of time as a practicing PT first.
I hope that helps!!Source(s): Pt student!
