Physical Therapy FAQs
Are degrees obtained in a transitional program equivalent to a professional entry-level physical therapy degree?
No. Transitional degrees will not be accepted for initial licensure.
Licensees that are subject to disciplinary action, as ordered by the Florida Board of Physical Therapy Practice, frequently require monitors to supervise the practice of those licensees.
The monitor is providing a service to the board, the licensee, the physical therapy profession and the citizens that we protect. Monitors are applauded for their willingness to participate in this process and are not under scrutiny by the physical therapy board.
Monitors are approved by the board or board chair after submission of acceptable credentials.
