How To Apply

Physical therapist assistants (PTAs) are licensed health care providers who provide physical therapy services under the supervision of a physical therapist.

PTAs work in a variety of settings such as skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, outpatient therapy practices, home health, specialty settings, and more. PTAs treat people of all ages who have conditions that limit ability to move and perform functional activities. They instruct in exercises and posture, assist patients to increase independence in walking and transfers and use adjunct modalities such as soft tissue mobilization, thermal agents, and electricity. PTAs review the plan of care, measure progress toward goals and document treatments in the medical record. They work closely with other allied health team members.
