October is National Physical Therapy Month

Posted: October 2, 2014 by Elizabeth Baker

October is National Physical Therapy Month, and we want to recognize those who have chosen the PT field to thank them for their life-changing work.

PTs and physical therapist assistants help patients transform their lives through motion, emotional support and encouragement.

At Pima Medical Institute we teach students to become physical therapist assistants at our Albuquerque, Denver, Houston, Las Vegas, Mesa, Seattle and Tucson campuses. We also offer a PTA bachelor of science degree online

Throughout the month, we will highlight stories and photos of Pima Medical Institute PTA students and alumni.

Meet Jenna Birchfield, a fourth-semester Tucson PTA student.

"After having knee surgery and attending physical therapy, I knew this was a field I would love to work in and learn more about. After a student in the program told me how much she loved it, I knew this was a program that would help me achieve my career goals.”

“Receiving education at PMI and being in this program have made a very positive impact on my life. The program and staff are amazing, and it feels great to work with students with similar interests and goals. The knowledge and skills I'm learning here make me excited for my future as a PTA.”
