Simply do a masters of pharmacy which is highly employable wit good remuneration

They're both very important fields and are equally needed. Physical therapy deals with rehabilitation of bones, joints, and muscles and gross motor skills. Occupational therapy deals more with the thought processes and coordination of fine motor skills. A stroke victim that has experienced loss of brain function and paralysis might require both physical and occupational therapy as an example. We also live in a fairly active society, one where sports injuries and accidents are common. Unfortunately, or rather fortunately for you if you're thinking of this as a career path, both types of therapists will be needed for many years to come.

i have completed my bachelors degree in pharmacy and looking for the higher scopes in pharmacy field

Higher demand, the higher the price goes. Remove the demand for something and then the price drops.

When demand for goods go up if it is expected to rise. the higher the population the higher the demand for the products or services

As a therapist I have never heard of a physical therapy technician.... This is a new one on me. Go to this link to first determine the difference between a physical therapy assistant and a physical therapy aide.http:/ searching a bit it seems that the programs offered for PT technicians sound very similar to those for physical therapy assistants, however when I searched the American Physical Therapy Association's website for "Physical Therapy Technician, nothing came up...From FAQ's on the website of The American Physical Therapy Association (http:/ heard about online PT Aide programs; are these accredited? No. CAPTE accredits only physical therapist and physical therapist assistant programs. What is CAPTE? (Also from the APTA website)The Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) is an accrediting agency that is nationally recognized by the US Department of Education (USDE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). CAPTE grants specialized accreditation status to qualified entry-level education programs for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants. The literature is very clear on the legal difference between PT, PTA's and PT aides. I would start there and research the PT Technician title/degree more in depth. Best regards,

If supply is greater then the demand then the price is lower but if the demand is higher then the supply then the price is higher due to rarity. :)

A specific minor is not required to obtain a degree in Physical Therapy. However, if you choose a minor, I would suggest you minor in something the will enhance your primary program of study, and make it something useful. You should be advised, that a BA in Physical Therapy in becoming scarce. If there are any colleges out there that still offer a BA in Physical Therapy it will be short-lived. Most colleges have made it into a Master's Degree, and there is some speculation it may be changed to a Doctorate in the future. There are some community colleges that offer an Associates of Applied Science Degree(AAS) as a Physical Therapy Assistant. However, if your thinking about a career as a Therapist think higher degrees.

Law of demand is the higher the price the lower of goods demand for

One of the more popular online physical therapy degrees is the Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy, and this program has been specifically designed to facilitate the transition between the BA/MA qualification and the doctoral degree. The online physical therapy degree that is the Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy is intended for those physical therapists who are already practicing in the field and serves to hone their practice skills as well as to prepare them for the doctoral degree. This degree is presented entirely online - although a candidate may have to take an oral examination on campus - and, depending on the individual practitioner’s level of experience and previous qualifications, can comprise anything from 8 through 22 separate courses. There are several different Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy degrees available online at present, and most, if not all, are fully accredited by institutions that include the Commission on Accreditation for Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) and the regional Commissions on Higher Education. The different degrees do, however, set different entrance requirements, and, while some state that their only requirement is that a student has to hold a current license to practice physical therapy in the United States, others are more specific. Further eligibility requirements could, for instance, include that a prospective student has a physical therapy degree accredited by the CAPTE with a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.00 or more and that he has worked for at least six months as a physical therapist in the USA. The Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy can be completed online over a period of approximately 18 months and, once the qualification has been obtained, students can progress to the Doctorate in Physical Therapy. The online Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy is presently offered by, among others, Boston University, Utica College and the A.T. Still University of Health Sciences, and information concerning these degree programs can be found online and can also be obtained directly from the aforementioned educational institutions. Obtaining a physical therapy degree online in the form of the Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy is an ideal choice for the qualified physical therapist who is ready to advance to the next level.

The higher the supply of an item is, the lower the price. The higher the demand of an item is, the higher the price. Supply and demand is a contrasting concept that allows basic economic systems to function.

because the demand was higher than in the modern days so there for the demand was higher

An increase in demand shifts the demand curve to the right. The supply curve does NOT shift. The shift in the demand curve will result in a higher price, and a higher quantity sold.

Supply and demand. The higher the demand and the lower the supply, the higher the value.

The currencies rate is decided by the supply and demand of the market. The higher the demand, the higher the price and vice versa.

The factors that can influence demand are the price of the good (the lower the price the higher demand and vice versa), income (higher income generally means a higher demand), market competition, tastes such as fashion, seasonal factors for example if its Christmas people will demand things associated with Christmas and in Winter people may demand winter wear etc.

There are two-year, four-year and PhD programs in physical therapy. Different institutions offer different programs, with the higher level degrees being highly competitive because there aren't that many of them. A PT Aide is a 2-year Associate's Degree, which is offered at a community college. Higher degrees are offered by a university the an Allied Health School. You'll find a list here: AND

law of demand: the higher the price the lower the demand for the product and vise versa

The following is written by and according to the U.S. Department of Labor and particular to job outlook for physical therapists.Employment of physical therapists is expected to grow much faster than average. Job opportunities will be good, especially in acute hospital, rehabilitation, and orthopedic settings.Employment change. Employment of physical therapists is expected to grow 27 percent from 2006 to 2016, much faster than the average for all occupations. The impact of proposed Federal legislation imposing limits on reimbursement for therapy services may adversely affect the short-term job outlook for physical therapists. However, the long-run demand for physical therapists should continue to rise as new treatments and techniques expand the scope of physical therapy practices. Moreover, demand will be spurred by the increasing numbers of individuals with disabilities or limited function.The increasing elderly population will drive growth in the demand for physical therapy services. The elderly population is particularly vulnerable to chronic and debilitating conditions that require therapeutic services. Also, the baby-boom generation is entering the prime age for heart attacks and strokes, increasing the demand for cardiac and physical rehabilitation. And increasing numbers of children will need physical therapy as technological advances save the lives of a larger proportion of newborns with severe birth defects.Future medical developments also should permit a higher percentage of trauma victims to survive, creating additional demand for rehabilitative care. In addition, growth may result from advances in medical technology that could permit the treatment of an increasing number of disabling conditions that were untreatable in the past.Widespread interest in health promotion also should increase demand for physical therapy services. A growing number of employers are using physical therapists to evaluate worksites, develop exercise programs, and teach safe work habits to employees.Job prospects. Job opportunities will be good for licensed physical therapists in all settings. Job opportunities should be particularly good in acute hospital, rehabilitation, and orthopedic settings, where the elderly are most often treated. Physical therapists with specialized knowledge of particular types of treatment also will have excellent job prospects.For the source and more detailed information concerning your request, click on the related links section (U.S. Department of Labor) indicated directly below this answer section.

increase price bit higher than earlier and produce more so that demand equals the supply.

No, you will need both higher level math and chemistry courses to qualify for pharmacy school.

If the supply decrease and demand is constant, it will result into higher prices for the good. Ideally, this will automatically make the demand higher than market supply which creates scarcity.
