Physical therapy provides services to patients and clients of all ages who have impairments, functional limitations, disabilities, or changes in physical function and health status resulting from injury, disease, or other causes. The physical therapist assistant works under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist and provides treatments in a variety of healthcare settings including hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, school systems, outpatient clinics, and private practices. A physical therapist assistant must be a graduate of an accredited physical therapist assistant education program from a college or university to be eligible to take the state board licensing exam. The objective of this Program is to provide graduates with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to qualify for entry-level positions as physical therapist assistants.
Physical therapist assistants must be licensed by their state in order to practice. Many states require physical therapist assistants to earn an associate degree from an accredited physical therapist assistant degree program and pass the National Physical Therapy Exam. Physical therapist assistants should be good with people, detail oriented, and physically able to help patients through exercises. One important quality for a physical therapy assistant to possess is a desire to help those in need.
Associate degree programs in physical therapist assistant training generally last two years and include a combination of classroom learning and hands-on experience. If you want to build an in-demand career helping others, consider enrolling in a physical therapist assistant training program.
