Course Sequence

The two-year Physical Therapist Assistant curriculum begins each August and spans five consecutive terms. The first two terms consist entirely of classroom learning, while the final three terms consist of full-time clinical internship experiences (40 hours per week) as well as didactic classroom learning. Students will complete their full-time clinical internships in a physical therapy department and will receive supervision from an on-site clinical instructor who is either a physical therapist or a physical therapist assistant.
