How to become a Physiotherapist

An individual aspiring to become a Physiotherapist will have to pursue a course of study in a University. Currently, the minimum entry level program in Nigeria is Bachelor of Physiotherapy (BPT) , Bachelor of Physiotherapy (B.Physiotherapy) or Bachelor of Medical Rehabilitation (BMR). Hopefully, in a not too distant future, all Nigerian Physiotherapy training program will transit to the Doctor of Physiotherapy (DPT) degrees. In North America, and hopefully very soon in Nigeria, the minimum Entry level education programs are typically at the Master and Doctoral  levels, i.e. Master of Physcal Therapy (MPT) or Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT).
