This 2.5 credit Ethics Course is designed for therapists wishing to satisfy the mandatory Ethics requirement with an interactive problem solving course. It builds on previous ethics knowledge. Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants are required to make ethical decisions every day while treating patients. This course will include facilitated discussion among participants regarding ethical practice and decision making in the realm of everyday physical therapy practice in a variety of settings. This course is interactive and will require participation on the part of those attending. If you prefer a more passive learning environment it is recommended you choose another course.
