The Associate in Science in Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) program is designed to provide students with entry-level skills and knowledge to work under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist in the rehabilitation of patients with musculoskeletal and/or neuromuscular deficits, disease or disorders. Graduates will be eligible to take the national licensing board exam required to practice in the field of physical therapy. Students will be considered Pre-PTA majors prior to final acceptance to the PTA program. Students not accepted into the PTA program may continue toward a degree in health studies or other related majors.
The PTA Program is a hands-on program offered on campus that also includes an internship component.
