This field has been expanding in recent years and the employment outlook continues to be good in hospitals, clinics, home care, and outpatient facilities. In addition to class work in psychology, medical terminology, neuro-anatomy and physiology, instrumentation and kinesiology for physical therapy, and advanced physical therapy techniques, students gain hands-on experience through clinical practice at area health-care facilities.
