Terra State Community College recently received official word that its Physical Therapist Assistant program has been granted accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).

“CAPTE granted a full five-year accreditation to Terra State, the maximum length awarded to any new PTA program,” said Bruce Wassung, PTA, MSPH, Assistant Professor and Director of Physical Therapist Assistant Program. “We are excited for our students and the patients and communities they will soon serve.”

Accreditation is important to students considering a career as a PTA, according to Wassung, because it helps assure the quality and consistency of the student’s classroom and clinical educational experiences. It is also very important to consumers of physical therapy services because it helps ensure that our patients are cared for by clinicians with the appropriate knowledge, skill and behaviors to meet the public’s expectations.
