Physical therapists change people’s lives like they are working a miracle. But before they get to this point, PTs need to go to school and devote time to learn the practice. Most PT schools have a B Average environment of students which is helpful for some by way of academic excellence. However this also creates anxiety and depression for some students who are asking if they are really cut out for the job. Dr. Will Boyd, DPT understands this hierarchy system is a part of the rigorous component that will demonstrate competency at satisfactory levels, but this can lead to dehumanizing the students and make them think they are just there to get high scores in the exams. One way to solve this is to create a community between faculty and students and empowering physical therapy students to let them do what they want. Learn how Dr. Boyd was able to deal with his depression and anxiety and what he envisions the future of PT schools should be.
