Our mission for the Physical Therapist Assistant Program is to graduate students who have obtained the knowledge and skills to become employed as licensed physical therapist assistants and become contributing members of the physical therapy profession and healthcare team in diverse settings.

Program Philosophy

The faculty and administrators of the Physical Therapist Assistant Program believe that technical, interpersonal, and critical thinking skills are important components of a quality educational experience. In addition, teamwork, ethics, and problem-solving skills are emphasized throughout the educational experience to ensure graduation of competent physical therapist assistants.

Goal Statement

The goal of this program is to provide students with appropriate didactic and clinical experience leading to successful licensure and entry-level employment in the profession of physical therapy.

Customer Satisfaction Policy

Baker College is an institution focused on customer satisfaction. To that end, any concerns or complaints regarding the Physical Therapist Assistant Program can be sent to the attention of the director of the program on the appropriate campus. The director will investigate the complaint, consult with all parties involved, and provide a response as soon as all information has been evaluated. The program director will inform the Dean of Health Sciences of the complaint, investigation, and what actions have been taken.

If resolution cannot be reached at the level of the program director, the problem will follow the chain of command beginning with the Dean of Health Sciences, followed by the Chief Academic Officer/Vice President of Academics of the campus, the President of the campus, and finally the President of the Baker College System.
