Program Mission Statement

Physical Therapist Assistant Program Mission Statement

The mission of the Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) Department is to provide each student the necessary education to become a competent entry-level physical therapist assistant. This is achieved through professional education and training using sequential instruction, practical clinical experiences, and mentoring. Emphasized throughout the student experience are critical thinking, scientific inquiry, ethics, professional behaviors, and team skills, as well as examination of the preferred relationship between the PT and PTA. Also emphasized is development of professional behaviors that facilitate and enhance positive therapeutic relationships with patients including respect and sensitivity for ethnic, cultural and spiritual differences. Qualified clinical sites further support these ideas through clinical education and mentoring.
