Blind Test Shows AI-Enhanced MRI Scans
If you have ever had an MRI scan before, you’ll know how unsettling the experience can be. You’re placed in a claustrophobia-inducing tube and asked to stay completely still for up to an hour while unseen hardware whirs, creaks, and thumps around you like a medical poltergeist. New research, though, suggests AI can help with this predicament by making MRI scans four times faster, getting patients in and out of the tube quicker.

CLC student 1710A, MRI Graduate Class of 2019

We enter the classroom, bright eyed and full of eagerness to learn of the explorations of our future chosen careers. While we sit comfortably, (for the most part), in our well-lit educational environment, notebooks blank and our pens waiting to start filling the pages with unknown and new information. The instructor really doesn’t share with you the reality, the fears, and the hard work that goes into
Resilience! What Is It? And How Can You Get Some
by Stephanie Shelburne, Ph.D.

The word RESILIENCE has become quite the buzzword in current media and marketing. Terms and concepts related to the idea of being resilient seem to pack quite a bit of value-added to products and services that claim to make you more resilient.

Clearly, as a public, we love the word and we love the idea of being resilient but what does it really mean?

Resilience is much more than just a buzzword. It’s also more than being prepared for adversity, an
LEARN TO FALL SO YOU CAN FLY
Written by Kari Allen-Hammer, Ph.D.

Stop resisting the inevitable and prepare yourself properly.

Our lives have abruptly and drastically shifted. For some, this means the ground is shuffling beneath you now and you have to alter your positioning to avoid falling.

For others, you may get a much-needed respite from the demands of an over-scheduled, stretched-too-thin lifestyle, but the stuckness of inactivity is beginning to set in.

We’re in the midst of a significant
Conversations
Can You Think of The Last Time You Were in A Conversation Where You Felt Like You Just Weren't Being Heard or Understood?
Have you ever finished a conversation and realized that you still had a ton of questions or comments and are actually not really sure what the end result of the conversation was? Or for that matter, do certain conversations leave you completely drained and feeling sort of spacey?

These are all signs that what’s happening isn’t really communication in the
When Passion & Skills Don’t Match
For many students, finding a career path is as easy as asking a simple question.

“What’s your passion?”

These students, having a passion that matches their skill set with reality aligning ever so perfectly, answer effortlessly. “Well, I’ve always been passionate about helping children, I love science and everyone in my family is a doctor, so I definitely want to pursue that field. I want to be a pediatrician. In fact, I have since I w

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.
