The Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) program provides students with entry-level skills and knowledge to work under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist in the rehabilitation of patients with musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, neuromuscular, and other dysfunctions, diseases, and disorders.
Students interested in the PTA Program should have a background and interest in the sciences, desire a physically active, progressive, challenging profession, interact well with persons of various ages and cultures, and have an interest in working with patients in physical rehabilitation, restoration, and prevention of disease. The PTA Technical Core program is a full-time day program. Students will attend classes or internships on a full-time basis as a cohort for four consecutive semesters.
