1 Naugatuck Valley Community College Physical Therapist Assistant

2 PHYSICAL THERAPIST ASSISTANT PROGRAM Naugatuck Valley Community College offers the Associate Degree education necessary to become a Physical Therapist Assistant. This five semester program (two years in PTA ) integrates arts and science courses with specialized physical therapy studies.

3 Physical Therapy The Science of Healing, The Art of Caring

4 What is the difference between a PT and a PTA? The Physical Therapist Assistant is the para-professional in physical therapy, delivering physical therapy treatments under the direction and supervision of a Physical Therapist (PT). The education of a PTA requires that the candidate earn an Associate Degree. PT programs primarily require a Doctorate Degree. It is important to note that credit from PTA classes is not directly transferable to the educational requirements of PT programs. Given the specific training and licensure of a PTA, the graduate is uniquely prepared for a career as a Physical Therapist Assistant.

5 CAREER OPPORTUNITIES Work for a Physical Therapist Assistant might be: in a hospital with patients who have had a hip replacement, injuries from trauma, or cancer in school systems for children who are disabled or need special attention in a private office providing orthopedic or sports related rehabilitation in home health agencies for patients making the transition home as they recover from a disability in industrial settings for the prevention or recovery from work injuries in rehabilitation hospitals or nursing homes for patients recovering from a hip fracture or stroke

6 FULL TIME PROGRAM 66 credits over two years 29 credits from arts and science courses, such as anatomy and physiology, mathematics, psychology, and social sciences. 37 credits from the 10 physical therapy courses 11 of those credits are earned in clinical education settings, completed in physical therapy clinics which affiliate with the PTA. All physical therapy classes are held during the day, 3-4 days per week; and the clinical component requires 40 hours of attendance weekly in the final semester.
