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: http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos167.htm... More
