Physical Therapy Assistant Schools

To become an accredited physical therapy assistant (PTA) you are required to complete a Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) accredited two year (5 semester) associate degree program. This provides students with the required knowledge, skills, and behaviors of a PTA and prepares them to take the national licensure examination which is required in most states to work as a PTA.

There are currently 276 CAPTE accredited physical therapist assistant programs running with a total of 10,166 students enrolled in 2010-2011.

Below is our full list of physical therapy assistant schools. To make it easy to navigate the we have sorted them by the state they are located in.
