PTA at Villa
Villa Maria College’s Physical Therapist Assistant program was designed for students who are serious about studying hard, staying focused and beginning impactful and lucrative careers shortly after graduation. The coursework isn’t easy, but the payoff is real: the program boasts an ultimate licensing exam pass rate of 100% and a 100% job placement rate for four years running!
Students enrolled in Villa’s PTA program can expect a 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio in classrooms and a 15:1 student-to-faculty ratio in labs. Students have their individual education needs met, and don’t have to worry about not having immediate access to resources.
Our small campus doesn’t limit our students. PTA students have exclusive access to everything needed to prepare for a career in their field: two labs that are stocked with gait devices, exercise equipment, state-of-the-art physical agents and more. Our campus even houses a long-term care facility that is staffed by PTA students looking to gain additional hands on experience.
Potential Career Paths
The American Physical Therapy Association expects that the employment of Physical Therapist Assistants will grow by 35% through 2018, making it a rapidly-growing field and an in-demand career choice.
Why Choose Villa
Villa’s supportive environment makes it possible for non-traditional students to excel both inside and outside of the classroom.
