Through the Physical Therapist Assistant program, our goal is to educate students on the most current concepts and practices in the field of physical therapy. We prepare future PTAs with the knowledge and skills to perform their clinical duties under the direct supervision of a Physical Therapist. As a Brookline College student, your training will involve a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on exercises. You will also have the opportunity to gain real-world experience by participating in 640 hours of clinical practicum.
We believe all successful PTAs must be caring, considerate, and compassionate individuals who respect the rights and dignity of their patients. Graduates of our program learn to espouse the highest standards of physical therapy assistance. Upon program completion, you too will be ready to contribute to the field as an effective, ethical, and productive member of any healthcare team. Finally, graduates of the Physical Therapist Assistant program are prepared to complete their certification and licensure exams.
