About the Webinar

A successful professional must develop a valuable personal brand and a clear career vision. These are daunting concepts to new physical therapists. The idea of career development is abstract and hard to explicitly define: What does it look like? How is it done? These are valid questions, but to be successful, they must be answered. The beautiful, and maddening, thing about career development is that there is no correct or incorrect method of doing it. This session will speak to the ideas of career development, professional development, and personal branding. Lessons on ways to begin these processes from day one of physical therapy school and into the early years of practice will be discussed. While the path to professional success as a physical therapist takes many forms, this session will focus upon the key foundational principles of the career development process and how physical therapy students and new physical therapists can begin implementing them immediately.  The session will conclude with a question and answer session with a panel of four young and accomplished physical therapists with unique early career experiences.

Following this educational session, the learner shall be able to:

  • Develop a clear and coherent personal mission statement
  • Understand that career and professional development are continual processes and apply   techniques to encourage continual advancement
  • Recognize challenges in early career development and find resources, tools, and skills, to approach such challenges head-on
