Teaching is considered as a noble profession and so is Physiotherapy or Physical Therapy (PT). The objective of this article is to provide an evidence-based update on the roles of a teacher/ educator in physical therapy from being a student for life and to learn forever, being a good companion to enhance teacher-student communication and peer-peer learning, and to be a successful mentor to inspire and lead by being an example. The three goals for teaching are intertwined and explained in relation to the three roles to provide a clear understanding of the teacher’s professional contribution in the field. Future qualitative studies exploring knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, behaviors and experiences of teachers and students during various teaching techniques are warranted to establish a firm evidence-based PT education.
