Trine Developing Physical Therapy Assistant Program
Thursday Dec 07, 2017 3:33am
Trine University

By: Sheila McCrea

Trine University is in the early stages of development for a Physical Therapist Assistant program, to be based at its Health Sciences Education Center in Fort Wayne.

Max Baumgartner, dean of the Rinker-Ross School of Health Sciences at Trine said the university has completed a comprehensive need analysis that has demonstrated the program will address a significant regional need for PTA graduates. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall national employment for physical therapist assistants and aides is expected to grow 30 percent from 2016 to 2026, due to the healthcare needs of an aging population and those with chronic conditions. The BLS reports the median annual wage for physical therapist assistants was $56,610 in May 2016.

The PTA program will be based in the newly renovated Health Sciences Education Center on Parkview Hospital's Randallia campus, alongside and integrated with the university's recently accredited Doctor of Physical Therapy program.

Students in Trine's bachelor of exercise science program will have the opportunity to simultaneously complete a Physical Therapist Assistant associate's degree during the final two years of their program.
