The Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) Program at Northeast will prepare students to work as valuable healthcare providers who are employable in any physical therapy setting. The program is an intense, academically challenging program that requires hard work and dedication. Engaged teaching and learning experiences promote an interactive learning environment in both lab and lecture. Students are trained with current technology and innovative exercise equipment to simulate realistic clinical settings. In order to complete the training, students must be able to perform the PTA Essential Functions and Physical Demands. Additionally, students are required to complete a physical exam, required vaccinations, tuberculosis test, a criminal background check, and a drug screen in order to perform clinical experiences during the second year of the program. Program graduates will be well prepared to take the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) for PTAs.
