Physical Therapist Assistants (PTAs) work under the direction of a licensed physical therapist. Duties include assisting the physical therapist in implementing treatment programs according to his/her plan of care. PTAs teach and monitor exercise and activities of daily living, conduct treatments using special equipment, administer modalities, and regularly report to the physical therapist on the patient's responses and progress. Clinical experiences are in physical therapy departments and clinics. Completion of the Associates degree in PTA is required to sit for the licensure exam; our graduates are eligible to meet the requirements of the Oklahoma Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision. The program is accredited by the Commission in Accreditation of Physical Therapy Education which can be found at http://www.capteonline.org.
