Brightwood Students Find a New Home!
Late last year Brightwood College in Van Nuys was abruptly closed, leaving hundreds of students without a school at which to complete their programs. The student’s educational goals and whole way of life was changed in an instant. But it did not take these students long to try and figure out what to do next. A large group of Brightwood’s DMS students approached our admissions department the day of the closure asking for help - and we immediately began working on creative ways we could accommodate these st
Transcranial Sonography Identifies Parkinson’s Earlier
According to Cedars-Sinai, transcranial sonography is a noninvasive and painless ultrasound technique that uses sound waves to evaluate blood flow in and around the brain. Physicians recommend this test to determine if there is anything happening in the blood vessels that is affecting blood flow to the brain.

Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA)

Casa Loma College is an open admissions College, however, acceptance into the Physical Therapist Assistant Program is limited. Acceptance into the program is based on applicants meeting not only the general admissions requirements but also fulfilling the specialized admissions requirements for the PTA program.

The students ranking the highest at the completion of the admissions process are admitted to each cohort.  The number of admitted students varies according to accreditation rules in place at the time of admission. Two qualified alternates may be identified and offered a seat if it becomes available in the first week.   If a seat does not become available, the first and second alternates will be guaranteed a seat in the next cohort if they wish to enter the Program at that time.  In the case of a tie score, the applicant with the earliest date of submission of a completed portfolio will be offered the seat.

The PTA Program is selective and candidates for admission are ranked according to an objective admission formula that ensures fairness and equitability.  The demand for a seat in the physical therapist assistant program is highly competitive.

The following are the Admissions Criteria for the PTA Program:

  1. Meet the General Admissions Requirements  to the College
  2. PTA Program applicants must submit a portfolio by a specified date. The contents of the portfolio must include:
    1. Two (2) letters of recommendation from persons unrelated to the applicant.
    2. Two (2) signed and sealed Prospective Student Observation Forms which together demonstrate forty-eight (48) hours of observation. The student must demonstrate having observed two different types of clinical settings (e.g., one acute care hospital and one outpatient clinic, or one neurologic rehab center and one children’s health center, etc.).
    3. Signed Essential Functions form.
    4. Copies of transcripts from high school and any post-secondary educational experiences
    5. Personal statement, an essay that tells the college about the prospective student, no more than three (3) typed double-spaced pages
  3. Applicants meet with a Financial Aid Advisor to discuss and get an estimate of their financial obligations and available financial assistance resources.
  4. PTA Program candidates who have submitted a completed portfolio are then scheduled by the Program Director for a personal interview with the Program Admissions Panel. An interview will not be scheduled without a completed portfolio having been submitted. Interviews will be held on a date to be announced.
  5. Final selection of the Program class and alternates is made following the interviews.
  6. Selected candidates return to the College to sign an agreement enrolling them in the College and admitting them to the PTA Program.
  7. Admitted students are then enrolled in a 2-week Introduction to Online Learning class to introduce them to the College and the skills and competencies the will need to succeed in online classes.
  8. Mandatory orientation meetings are held on campus for all accepted PTA Program students (including alternates) on Monday and Tuesday approximately 1-2 weeks before the scheduled start of the Program. At this time, students will receive and review the PTA Student Handbook, sign New Student Forms in preparation for the first day of class, and receive CPR and other training. Students who do not attend the entire orientation will lose his or her seat to the next alternate.
