I will be attending college here in FL for physical therapy.
What's the market like in NYC for this?

Thanks!

maybe i'm giving a real frank answer here, but wouldn't something like physical therapy always be needed? people get into accidents quite frequently and need rehabilitation.

Right, I know that much. But from a few searches I've done, there are certain places that don't pay as well as others, and some areas don't have as much need for more therapists than others.
My guess would be that New York, being such a large city, would have a great market, always willing to take more. But I wasn't sure.

Another thing is I've heard people say that some professional (medical, financial, etc) positions can be difficult to work in if you didn't attend a prestigious Ivy-league-type school.

Yes, physical therapy will always be needed, and I am by no means in it for the money, but I guess my main point is would the income be well enough for me to ever be able to afford a nice apartment or something in the city?

i dont know what physical therapists make but if u want to live in manhattan comfortably you need 6 figures after taxes. an average 1 bdrm for rent in manhattan is anywhere from $2000 and up depending on the area. harlem, washington heights, inwood, a little less.

Hopefully you are attending the University of Florida which has a top notch physical therapy program. GO GATORS!

I would think your school's placement office would have helpful info. Have you checked with them?

If the people I know are any indication, enough of them are or have been taking pt to assure me that there is a sizable market for professionals. Your income will probably depend on the kind of practice you have, whether you are in a small, private partnership or as part of the staff of a hospital or rehab center.
