Physical Therapist Assistant
Physical Therapist Assistants work as technical health care providers who work under the supervision of a physical therapist. You would perform movement-related activities and therapeutic techniques for patients with burns, amputations, spinal cord injuries and cardiac, neurologic and orthopedic injuries. Such techniques might include gait training, heat and cold applications, massage and the use of assistive, prosthetic and orthotic devices. This two year program leads to an Associate degree and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education.

Attending the Physical Therapist Assistant program at STCC has been the most rewarding and life-changing decision I ever made. The PTA program faculty is very knowledgeable and supportive, and will go above and beyond for their students.Yesenia Saunders, Class of 2018, Newtown Rehabilitation and Health Care Center, Newtown, CT
