If you relish the challenges of creative problem solving and critical thinking, and enjoy meeting people while wishing to work with those who are experiencing physical, developmental, and/or emotional challenges, a career as an OTA and/or PTA is for you. You will have the opportunity to work in a variety of environments such as acute care and community hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, long-term care facilities and private practice.
