Pro bono services are consistent with our profession’s values and vision.
Physical therapists and physical therapist assistants have a moral and ethical obligation to provide services to those without access to care due to financial reasons, lack of availability of services, or a disaster.
It is the responsibility of PTs and PTAs to comply with licensure requirements, standards of practice, state and federal laws, and ethical standards, which are not diminished or exempted because the service is subsidized or provided for free.
