Do you like to help others? Are you interested in being an integral part of a healthcare team? Would you like to work with sophisticated medical equipment or directly with patients to help diagnose illness or restore physical function? If so, then a career in physical therapy, occupational therapy, or a medical imaging science (nuclear medicine, radiography, radiation therapy, or sonography) could be a great choice for you. At TCC, you’ll receive expert instruction in the mathematical, physical, social and biological sciences as well as the liberal arts. When you graduate with your degree from TCC, you will be well-prepared to transfer to a four-year university and pursue your Bachelor’s degree in a biological sciences program or in a medical imaging program of your choice. If you choose our Pre-PT or Pre-OT emphasis, this degree will align with the pre-requisite requirements for post-baccalaureate programs in Physical Therapy or Occupational Therapy.
