What would you like to do?
It really depends on your definition of "therapist." Assuming you mean "psychotherapist", here is a general idea: All therapists (counselors, social workers, marri…age & family therapists, and psychologists) pursue a traditional undergrad degree which is usually 4 yrs. Here's where it gets tricky! After undergrad one has some choices. Of the choices, you could pursue a masters degree in (counseling, social work, marriage & family therapy, or psychology.) All of these are usually 2-3yrs. BUT! It doesn't stop there. Once you get a masters, then you typically have to work about 3,000 hours(or about 2 years) of supervised work under a licensed practitioner. From here, then you should be eligible to take a state (and in some cases a national exam) to be licensed as a "whatever your degree is in therapist." (If you pass). Now the other route one can take is to get a doctorate. Most are in Psychology(Phd or PsyD), but there are some in social work and education. In getting the doctorate, one should expect to commit 4-6 yrs of study to complete it(depending on if you have a masters degree). Also, most psychology doctorate grads must complete a 1 yr internship after graduating, which enables one to take the licensing exam to be a psychologist. So in all, if you go to undergrad that's 4yrs+ A masters degree 2-3yrs+ Depending on if you have a masters degree 4-6 yrs of doctoral work =about 10-12 yrs in school(+ 1yr for internship if you get a doctorate in psychology) , if you go all the way for a doctorate. If you just want to get a masters and be a therapist then figure about 6-7 yrs+ 2yrs for licensing.
No you do not. What you need is to go to a private school. About half of the states in the US require a license to practice massage therapy (check which ones at the American M…assage Therapy Association Website: www.amtamassage.org or with www.massagetherapy.com ). There are lots of schools offering massage education. Hands-on teaching is one of the most important aspects. A solid understanding of proper hand and body mechanics as well as anatomy and physiology are also key. Ask local therapists what school they went to and what they liked about it. Most reputable schools have been in business 10 years or more. Be careful, some schools use questionable or unethical tactics to get your money. I had lots of referrals to the school I finally chose and it has been the best choice I've ever made. I am now teaching at the school as an assistant instructor five years later. The Cortiva Institute is the largest in the nation with over 8 separate schools and campuses, while the Swedish Institute in NY is the oldest. There are also good schools in North Carolina, such as Natural Touch in Greensboro and Hickory, www.naturaltouchschools.com. There are now more 2 year college massage programs available which make it more affordable. Figure out what you need in your state, what your personal need are as far as how you learn best and find a school that can fulfill your needs. Yes, you have to go to collage to be a massage therapist but only for four years
It takes about three or four years at the most but five times out of ten you wont graduate until your about 22 if you go straight to college out of high school but if you …don't then it would take about the same amount of time but you would probable graduate around the age of 24 if you ask me
What is the average salary of a physical therapist and how many years of college do you need to get this job?
Most employers require at least a MPT degree which requires five years of school but many schools are pushing for the DPT which will require six. Salary depends on where… you live and your experience, but the average is in the area of 58-67k.
In most areas of the US the minimum requirement is 500 hours of training that can be completed in six months of full time at an accepted school. There are certifications,… licenses, or some form of state regulation that is required currently in 42 states, including the District of Columbia. Some states do their own licensing exams while others use the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTM.) To be eligible to take the examination through the NCBTM, applicants must have 500 hours of formal training at a state licensed training institute or approved school including: 1) At least 125 hours in anatomy, physiology and kinesiology. 2) 200 hours in massage and bodywork assessment, theory and practice. 3) 40 hours of in-class, supervised instruction in pathology. 4) 10 hours of business instruction, including at least 6 hours of ethics. 5) 125 hours of additional in-class, supervised instruction in a related area. Starting in January of 2009, there is another test called the MBLEx (Massage & Bodywork Licensing Examination). It is governed by the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB). Currently there are 31 states that have joined this new testing association.

A license is required in all States, the District of Columbia, and all U.S. territories. In order to obtain a license, pharmacists must earn a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.…D.) degree from a college of pharmacy and pass several examinations. Education and training. Pharmacists must earn a Pharm.D. degree from an accredited college or school of pharmacy. The Pharm.D. degree has replaced the Bachelor of Pharmacy degree, which is no longer being awarded. To be admitted to a Pharm.D. program, an applicant must have completed at least 2 years of postsecondary study, although most applicants have completed 3 or more years. Other entry requirements usually include courses in mathematics and natural sciences, such as chemistry, biology, and physics, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences. In 2007, 92 colleges and schools of pharmacy were accredited to confer degrees by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). About 70 percent of Pharm.D. programs require applicants to take the Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT). Courses offered at colleges of pharmacy are designed to teach students about all aspects of drug therapy. In addition, students learn how to communicate with patients and other health care providers about drug information and patient care. Students also learn professional ethics, concepts of public health, and medication distribution systems management. In addition to receiving classroom instruction, students in Pharm.D. programs spend about one-forth of their time in a variety of pharmacy practice settings under the supervision of licensed pharmacists. In the 2006-07 academic year, 70 colleges of pharmacy also awarded the master-of-science degree or the Ph.D. degree. Both degrees are awarded after the completion of a Pharm.D. degree and are designed for those who want additional clinical, laboratory, and research experience. Areas of graduate study include pharmaceutics and pharmaceutical chemistry (physical and chemical properties of drugs and dosage forms), pharmacology (effects of drugs on the body), and pharmacy administration. Many master's and Ph.D. degree holders go on to do research for a drug company or teach at a university. Other options for pharmacy graduates who are interested in further training include 1-year or 2-year residency programs or fellowships. Pharmacy residencies are postgraduate training programs in pharmacy practice and usually require the completion of a research project. These programs are often mandatory for pharmacists who wish to work in hospitals. Pharmacy fellowships are highly individualized programs that are designed to prepare participants to work in a specialized area of pharmacy, such clinical practice or research laboratories. Some pharmacists who own their own pharmacy obtain a master's degree in business administration (MBA). Others may obtain a degree in public administration or public health. Licensure. A license to practice pharmacy is required in all States, the District of Columbia, and all U.S. territories. To obtain a license, a prospective pharmacist must graduate from a college of pharmacy that is accredited by the ACPE and pass a series of examinations. All States, U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia require the North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam (NAPLEX), which tests pharmacy skills and knowledge. Forty-four States and the District of Columbia also require the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Exam (MPJE), which tests pharmacy law. Both exams are administered by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP). Each of the eight States and territories that do not require the MJPE has its own pharmacy law exam. In addition to the NAPLEX and MPJE, some States and territories require additional exams that are unique to their jurisdiction. All jurisdictions except California currently grant license transfers to qualified pharmacists who already are licensed by another jurisdiction. Many pharmacists are licensed to practice in more than one jurisdiction. Most jurisdictions require continuing education for license renewal. Persons interested in a career as a pharmacist should check with individual jurisdiction boards of pharmacy for details on license renewal requirements and license transfer procedures. Graduates of foreign pharmacy schools may also qualify for licensure in some U.S. States and territories. These individuals must apply for certification from the Foreign Pharmacy Graduate Examination Committee (FPGEC). Once certified, they must pass the Foreign Pharmacy Graduate Equivalency Examination (FPGEE), Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) exam, and Test of Spoken English (TSE) exam. They then must pass all of the exams required by the licensing jurisdiction, such as the NAPLEX and MJPE. Applicants who graduated from programs accredited by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP) between 1993 and 2004 are exempt from FPGEC certification and examination requirements. Other qualifications. Prospective pharmacists should have scientific aptitude, good interpersonal skills, and a desire to help others. They also must be conscientious and pay close attention to detail, because the decisions they make affect human lives. Advancement. In community pharmacies, pharmacists usually begin at the staff level. Pharmacists in chain drugstores may be promoted to pharmacy supervisor or manager at the store level, then to manager at the district or regional level, and later to an executive position within the chain's headquarters. Hospital pharmacists may advance to supervisory or administrative positions. After they gain experience and secure the necessary capital, some pharmacists become owners or part owners of independent pharmacies. Pharmacists in the pharmaceutical industry may advance in marketing, sales, research, quality control, production, or other areas.
