Students, who prefer physiotherapy program, should have knowledge about the qualifications of physical therapy education. It provides a means of describing to nature and characteristics of physical therapy professional entry level educational programs. Th is study is performed with Karabük University Health High School Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation first Class Students (age=19.78±1.26, n=41, F/M 19/22). We developed a questionnaire related to World Confederation for Physical Th erapy (WCPT) guideline for physical therapist professional entry level education. Th is questionnaire is composed of three sections, in which physiotherapy job awareness of the students is asked. Th e questionnaire results showed that, these three sections levels were above three, according to LIKERT Scale rating. First and third levels of ‘awareness for suff iciencies in physiotherapy’ and ‘job awareness’ of the students’ which prefer this physiotherapy due to their interest, were higher than the results of the students who prefer this program due to the other factors (p=0.049, and p=0.002, respectively) when the results of questionnaire were compared. Th is study will help to ascertain the aims and requirements of physiotherapy students and by this way to be a guide for education of more productive job professionals.
