PTA Clinical Rotations

Future Students

Review the list of possible clinical sites for the PTA Program. Keep in mind that these are not comprehensive and this list is always changing. The purpose of making it available is to start you, the student, thinking about possible clinical rotation sites. Keep in mind that you are responsible for all costs associated with clinical rotations, including but not limited to: housing, food, travel, car repair, healthcare, and entertainment.

Clinical sites are a privilege with no cost to the college or the student.  Therefore, clinicals are provided at the discretion of the clinical site and are not always available.
