Overview


The Professionalism Series consists of 10 modules. Module 2: History of Professionalism in Physical Therapy provides you with a historical perspective of professionalism and the maturation of physical therapy to a doctoring profession. It also offers insights into key professional and ethical documents such as the Code of Ethics, other core documents such as the Standards of Practice, and the application of these professional documents to cases. Through historical examination and case study, you’ll identify five current or future ethical issues for the profession.

This module helps fulfill the professionalism prerequisite requirement for completing APTA's Advanced Clinical Instructor Education and Credentialing Program. You do not have to be enrolled in the Advanced CIECP to take this course and earn CEU credit.
