I go for physical therapy… 2x week. 😉September 5, 2011 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm #806024popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Oh. I get it now. You want to be a physical therapist.
Yes, it is fine for a beis yaakov girl. It is even a great job. But it takes a pretty long time and is a hard program. Just a heads up on that.
Think about Occupational Therapy also. My friends wife did that, and apparently half her class at SUNY downstate was frum women. (There was one frum guy, and one arab guy, and they would always partner up since neither wanted to practice with the women.)September 6, 2011 1:56 am at 1:56 am #806025kylbdnrMember
I’m in an all Jewish frum girl program in LIU for Occupational Therapy. I have 2 years left.September 6, 2011 6:05 am at 6:05 am #806026WIYMember
Please don’t give out private info that would allow people to figure out who you are.September 6, 2011 6:09 am at 6:09 am #806027am yisrael chaiParticipant

Have you said anything to those posters who use their name as their sn??!September 6, 2011 12:51 pm at 12:51 pm #806028Raphael KaufmanMember
I thought that physical therapy was a medical procedure. The question is the same as, “Is it appropriate for a Beis Yaakov girl to go to a dentist or an endocrinologist?”September 6, 2011 1:27 pm at 1:27 pm #806029golden momMember
