Purpose of the Student Handbook
This handbook is designed to provide you with information about our expectations of you, the Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) student, throughout your tenure in the PTA program from entry to graduation. It is intended as a resource for information and guidance for your success in the Physical Therapist Assistant Program.
The PTA Student handbook will guide you as you progress through the program. Information about the PTA program and college wide policies will be contained in this PTA Student Handbook, COS Student Handbook and the COS course catalog. The COS Student Handbook can be found online at: http://www.cos.edu. You will be required to sign the student handbook checklist acknowledging your responsibility for all the information.
Clinical Education Manual
The purpose of this manual is to give you more specific information regarding your clinical affiliations. It is a complimentary document to your PTA Student Handbook. All program policy and procedures will be enforced. Guidelines for behavior and scope of practice outlined in the PTA Student Handbook are still expected. Please have access to both manuals during your clinical affiliations in your Portfolio.
