The Physical Therapist Assistant Program is an intensive 5 semester program designed to provide the student with the technical education required to sit for the Physical Therapist Assistant National Physical Therapy Examination.

Licensed physical therapist assistants find employment opportunities in such settings as hospitals, nursing homes, home health agencies, rehabilitation centers, school systems, sports medicine facilities, and private practices.
