About this Program

This program prepares students for employment as a Physical Therapist Assistant, a health-care provider who, with the guidance of a physical therapist, performs a wide variety of functions as part of the health-care team. This field has been expanding in recent years and the employment outlook continues to be good in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home care, and outpatient facilities. In addition to class work in psychology, medical terminology, neuro-anatomy and physiology, instrumentation and kinesiology for physical therapy, and advanced physical therapy techniques, students gain hands-on experience through clinical practice at area health-care facilities. The Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) nationally accredits this program.
