Physical therapy is an exciting, demanding profession requiring frequent standing, walking and occasional heavy lifting. Patients range in age from newborn to more than 100 years old. Physical therapists and assistants provide direct patient care of individuals who experience temporary or permanent disability due to pain, injury, disease or birth defects. Some examples of patient diagnoses include: stroke; broken bones; strained muscles of the back, leg, or shoulder; muscle weakness; cerebral palsy; burns; wounds; and cancer.
The Physical Therapist Assistant program is a limited access program, in which both program admission and course registration are restricted to a certain number of students meeting predetermined criteria. Please see the application information packet for admissions and acceptance criteria.
