    programs in the country. Close to 10 of those
    courses honored Master's degrees in PT, whereas
    about two hundred granted doctoral degrees. Be
    willing to spend a minimum of 2 yrs on a Master's
    degree along with 3 years on a doctoral degree to

    enough, then you better start counting another
    years to be added to that 6-7 years minimum PT
