Movement is mobility, and mobility is massively important. Whether through injury, surgery, or the unexpected, many people need the help of a physical therapist to regain function and mobility to be active in their daily lives. You can play a vital role in getting patients back to satisfying and independent lives through our Physical Therapist Assistant program.
By combining theory with hands-on work in our state-of-the-art lab, you’ll learn the fundamentals of trigger point release, massage therapy, ultrasound, and mobility exercises, as well as how to assist physical therapists with a wide range of diagnoses for people of all ages. The program has been created with input from the Missouri Health Professions Consortium (MHPC) and will prepare you to pass the licensure exam in order to open a broad range of career opportunities.
We believe time-on-task has to be part of your education. That means time spent learning from experienced instructors in real-world environments and real-world situations. That’s why the State Tech campus is home to more than 50 labs, an automotive bay, aviation hangar, and 40+ acres of land dedicated to our heavy equipment operations program.
