About this course

The Clarkson College Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) traditional track is designed for first-time college students or those who have not previously earned an accredited associate’s or bachelor’s degree. Throughout the integrated two-year program, our expert faculty prepare students to provide safe, ethical and effective rehabilitative services under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist (PT).

To prepare our students for their role as an entry-level PTA, our curriculum combines general education courses with those specific to the PTA profession, such as Functional Anatomy and Therapeutic Exercise. As a student in the program, you will spend ample time in our on-campus labs familiarizing yourself with current equipment and therapeutic techniques used in the physical therapy field as you collaborate with classmates to create patient interventions and treatment plans.
