Physical Therapist Assistant

If you're looking for a career that's physically active and allows you to help improve the quality of life for patients, the Physical Therapist Assistant program is an outstanding option. Physical Therapist Assistants help to improve the function and overall health of each patient they care for with the use of exercise and pain relieving agents. The Kaskaskia College Physical Therapist Assistant program focuses on preparing our students to meet the ever-changing demands in the health care field and takes a hands-on approach to learning in both the classroom and laboratory settings.
