I graduate from college in April with a biology degree. I want to work a year before going back to grad school for physical therapy. What kind of job can I get in physical therapy without being a certified Physical Therapy Assistant? What are some good places to look?

You can become a PT technician/aide without any previous training or experience. Many future PTs are employed as techs before going to grad school. It doesn't pay much, but is a good experience. Start with the HR department at your local hospital.

You could be a secretary. To do any sort of patient care you generally need some sort of training. You may be able to be hired off the street to be a physical therapy aide. You may also be able to find a short program for this. Check out this site for more information: More
