Physical Therapist Assistant
The Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) Program at Northeast will prepare students for a career to work under the direction and supervision of a licensed physical therapist in providing patient treatment. As a public college, students find our tuition more affordable than most private colleges receive the finest training in the region, including over 600 hours of clinical experience and instruction that will prepare them to work in a variety of settings.
Enrollment in the program is limited and based on a selective admissions process. During the sophomore year of the PTA program, students are required to submit a physical exam, required vaccinations, tuberculosis test, a criminal background check, and a drug test.
