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 transfers, therapeutic exercise, gait training, modalities such as ultrasound and e-stim, and manual therapy, as well as how to assist physical therapists with a wide range of diagnoses for people of all ages. The program will prepare you to pass the licensure exam in order to open a broad range of career opportunities. State Tech is a member of the Missouri Health Professions Consortium (MHPC).
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.
