The Physical Therapist Assistant Program is comprised of 76 (Effective 5/2/2016) credit hours. The PTA program curriculum is designed to provide a combination of theory, skills, and clinical based training for students to develop entry level competency as a physical therapist assistant (PTA). The curriculum includes in-depth study of anatomy, kinesiology, pathophysiology, patient data collection, therapeutic interventions, and patient care. Interwoven in the program design is a clinical education component that provides students with real life learning opportunities in a variety of physical therapy work settings. Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to sit for the National Physical Therapy Examination for PTA and will be prepared to provide care as physical therapist assistant under the supervision of licensed physical therapists. The PTA program has developed its mission, goals, and objectives to be in synchrony with the mission of SABER, Inc. and specific to the professional community that it serves. The program and curriculum are dynamic in order to meet the changing needs of the community and physical therapy profession.
