Florida Physical Therapy Assistant Schools & Degree Programs List

There are more than 20 schools in Florida offering a degree in physical therapy assisting - more than most states in the U.S.

There is a good mix of populous areas with program offerings, such as Miami, Jacksonville, and Fort Lauderdale, as well as smaller areas like Homestead, Clearwater and Bradenton, so you should be able to find a school that is within driving distance.

Florida physical therapy assistants also compare well to the rest of the United States when it comes to salary. On average, Florida PTAs make more (between $1,000 and $9,000 per year) at all experience levels.

Considering the salary comparison and the abundance of PTA program offerings in the state, we believe Florida is one of the top states to become a physical therapy assistant.

Add in the fairly active younger community and the older community requiring geriatric care, and the outlook is very good for Florida PTAs.

Most programs are Associates or Associates in Science degrees, but all will prepare you for your licensure exams that you will need to become a PTA in Florida.
