This program will teach you the communication skills for patient and family interactions, the proper documentation of patient care, and techniques to interact with members of the health care team.

Physical Therapist Assistants work in a variety of physical therapy settings including hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation facilities, schools, and extended care facilities. Employment opportunities are excellent. Opportunities for continuing education are also available.

Are you a caring individual with strong communication, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills? Then consider the rewarding field of Physical Therapist Assistant.
