Program Description

The Physical Therapist Assistant and Occupational Therapist Assistant (PTA and OTA) diploma program prepares you with the skills, theoretical knowledge and practical experience to help clients regain mobility, recover from injuries, and overcome challenges to become independent. The Occupational Therapist Assistant and Physiotherapist Assistant Education Accreditation Program (OTA & PTA EAP) is responsible for accrediting OTA/PTA education programs. The Therapist Assistant Program (PTA & OTA) at MacEwan University, following the most recent Accreditation Review visit, has received notice from the OTA & PTA EAP that the program has been awarded Probationary Accreditation Status. Probationary status is awarded when deficiencies are identified with respect to compliance with some of the accreditation standards and criteria. The Therapist Assistant (PTA & OTA) Program will be working towards fixing these identified deficiencies, with the goal to be awarded Partial or Full Accreditation status. In the unlikely event that the Therapist Assistant (PTA & OTA) program is awarded non-accreditation status in the future, students in their graduating year who successfully complete the program within the original time frame scheduled for their graduation, will be considered as graduates of an accredited program. All other students enrolled in the program will not be considered graduates of an accredited program if the Therapist Assistant (PTA & OTA) Program is awarded non-accreditation status before their graduation.
