Like get the patient prepared for the doctor or maybe just wheeling them out to their ride to go home after surgery nothing too medical just everyday simple stuff?
Or would I still need some kind of degree to even do that?

You can work in Patient Transportation without a degree I believe. Get patients ready to see the Doc is usually done by an RN, LPN or a certified Medical assistant. Best to call the hospital you are thinking of working in, and talk to someone in Human resources. They can tell you what is available and what the qualifications are for each position!! ;o)

PTA is the legal designation for a Physical Therapy Assistant - that's at least an associates degree You could also be a Rehab Aide or a Rehab assistant with only a HS diploma/GED.... although experience in a exercise related field is a plus!!
