It goes without saying that serving in the Air Force is not without its hazards. From simple accidents to training injuries to wound recovery, Air Force Physical Therapists have a role in maintaining the health and readiness of more than 300,000 Airmen. And whether you're in the United States or abroad, you'll have the support and facilities you need to do your job without the red tape of running a practice and dealing with insurance companies.
To ease your transition into the Air Force, you'll enter a five-week training regimen designed to educate you on the ways of both the military and military healthcare. You'll participate in physical conditioning five days a week, leadership training and classroom studies.
