    Which population are you excited to work with?

      How to Answer

      Are you interviewing for a position that works with a population you haven't worked with before? No worries, this could be your chance to provide input with a new set of eyes. Conversely, if you have a preferred population that you prefer to work with or have expertise with, let the interviewer know.

      Answer Examples

      Ryan's Answer

      "I'm excited to get the chance to work with children. In my past positions, I've only worked with adults. I'm excited to tap back into my internship days and work with kids again."

      Ryan's Answer

      "My journey to become a Physical Therapist began when I was rehabbing a sports injury in high school. I'm most looking forward to working with athletes and other patients on orthopedic related rehabilitation issues."

      Ryan's Answer

      "My favorite population that I have had the chance to work with are geriatric patients. In watching my mother receive great care from her Physical Therapist while battling Alzheimer's Disease and Osteoporosis, I want to be able to provide that same great care to a generation that much deserves it."

      Anonymous Answer

      "I don’t have a particular type of population that I like working with. As long as I can offer my services to an individual who needs physical therapy, then I would be excited to be a part of his rehabilitation process. Also, I believe that having to work with patients from different age groups and deal with a plethora of conditions would make my work more challenging and help me grow as a professional."
