RCC partners with Lane Community College to provide training for physical therapy assistants in Jackson and Josephine counties.
Students successfully completing the program are awarded an Associate of Applied Science degree by Lane Community College. RCC offers program prerequisites, general education, and related coursework locally, while students access PTA program-specific courses through LCC distance education delivery using Lane Online.

Most of the program can be completed locally. Clinical placements in the second year of the program will depend on availability of sites. As such, students may have to travel outside their immediate geographic area to a location in the Pacific Northwest. For information visit the LCC Physical Therapy Assistant program page.
