Physical therapist assistants play an important role in the rehabilitation and treatment
of patients with diverse medical conditions or injuries. Through the use of therapeutic
modalities, exercise and other techniques, physical therapy assists patients in the
relief of pain and discomfort as well as restoring optimal function. Students enrolled
in this program are prepared to perform entry-level physical therapy procedures and
related tasks under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist. Clinical education
experiences in a wide variety of health care facilities are provided.
Employment opportunities are rapidly increasing in hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, schools, patients’ homes, sports medicine clinics and private practices.
Graduates are eligible to take the National Physical Therapy Examination for the Physical Therapist Assistant administered by the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy.
