One of the many wonderful things about the physical therapy profession is the amazing breadth of opportunities one has just by entering this profession. Sure, you can graduate and become a PT or PTA and spend your career in a clinic, but you also can become a researcher, a teacher, a legislative advocate, or even find yourself in the field of information technology working with electronic medical records — and those are just a few examples!

As a physical therapist for 25 years, Vicki Landers, PT, DPT, has reinvented herself professionally many times over. In this episode, we talk about her career journey as well as how you can discover and explore your own career path. She even gives tips as to what questions you should ask yourself to help get started.
