Best Two, Four Year Schools in the Nation Ranked for Quality Physical Therapy Education

A new list from the Community for Accredited Online Schools (AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org) has identified the Best Physical Therapy Programs at colleges across the U.S. for 2016-2017. As a leading higher education information and resource provider, the site compared data on four-year and two-year schools offering vocational and physical therapy assistant training on-campus and online, giving top honors to Idaho State University, Florida Gateway College, College of Central Florida, Pensacola State College, University of Maine at Presque Isle and Western Iowa Tech Community College, San Juan College, Rhodes State College, Kansas City Kansas Community College and Delta College respectively.

“In a field with some of the biggest job growth projections over the next decade, these vocational and physical therapy assistant programs provide a positive opportunity for students,” said Doug Jones, CEO and Founder of the Community for Accredited Online Schools. “The schools on these lists are offering exemplary training options for students interested in becoming physical therapy assistants or moving onto doctoral-level studies.”

In order to earn a spot on the Community for Accredited Online Schools’ lists, colleges must meet specific base requirements. Each must hold regional accreditation and be registered as public or private not-for-profit institutions. Providing career placement services is another standard guideline all schools must comply with. To determine where each college ranks on each list, the site compares more than a dozen school-specific statistics, including student-teacher ratios and financial aid availability.
