APTA Report on PT, PTA Student Debt Delivers Stark Assessment

"Education debt among PTs and PTAs is a pervasive problem, and taking on the challenges will require strategies that are just as comprehensive. Based largely on an APTA survey of PTs and PTAs, "Impact of Student Debt on the Physical Therapy Profession" reports that more than 9 in 10 PT graduates are in debt for an average of nearly $153,000 — an amount that doesn't include mortgage debt. For nearly all of those PTs, most of their debt load is related to their PT education, with an average balance of $116,000 in related debt... Overall, the impacts are more severe for non-white PTs, PTs with lower household incomes, and those with financial dependents."

Join our SSIG Facebook Group (open to members AND non-members) to engage in open dialog about student debt and solutions.
