    Anyone know why there is no PTA forum on here? I'm just curious. I found this website to be extremely helpful (when I was applying to PT schools), and now that I'm no longer pursuing a DPT degree, it would be great to have additional thoughts, comments and concerns on being a PTA as well.
    Just a thought.

    My only guess is tha PTA is an associates degree and this forum is geared more towards masters/docs? Then again, there is no PA forum here either.

    There is a PA forum. Press control F and type PA.

    The PA RN NP forums are all in one.

    I believe what Fejin said is probably the reason. Additionally, there are probably more people trying to get into DPT programs than PTA programs per year, and DPTs are more abundant than PTAs (I would think...at least in all the clinics I've worked in lol).

    But PTAs are totally welcome on here as far as I'm concerned, and there are some threads dedicated to PTA-related issues. If there is a large demand for a separate forum, I can ask the SDN overlords, but I think anything that would be posted in a PTA forum could be relevant in this one too.
