The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program incorporates Core Values of Professionalism and The Code of Ethics as described by the American Physical Therapy Association into curricular design. The Core Values are accountability, altruism, compassion/caring, excellence, integrity, professional duty, and social responsibility. The APTA Code of Ethics describes specific principles of education and practice guided by these core values. Each document guides curricular content to provide graduates of the DPT program with the skills required to deliver quality, patient-centered healthcare. The importance of practicing in a manner that supports the dignity and rights of all individuals, addresses the rights and needs of patients and clients and benefits local, national or global needs requires integration of knowledge from humanities and biopsychosocial fields.
