Student Physical Therapists' Self-Efficacy Increases Over a Three-Year Entry Level Program
Self-efficacy is a person’s belief about their capability to perform at a certain level for a specific task within a given context. Self-efficacy uses an internal reference of belief about capability rather than an external criterion such as a grade on an exam. The purpose of this study was to document the changes in self-efficacy of student physical therapists over the course of a three-year professional physical therapy program.
