The Chattahoochee Technical College Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) program provided an Ethics & Jurisprudence continuing education course recently at the college’s North Metro Campus in Acworth for Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants.
“This course was provided to the Chattahoochee Tech PTA program’s clinical partners, which includes clinical instructors from throughout our service area,” said Chattahoochee Tech PTA Program Director Stephanie Puffer. “They serve as preceptors and recognize that educating our future healthcare colleagues is a professional responsibility for the continued growth of our profession.”
The Ethics & Jurisprudence course was provided as part of the Chattahoochee Tech’s PTA program’s ongoing relationship with Mercer University’s Department of Physical Therapy program, according to Puffer, who noted that this course is a biennium requirement for PT and PTA re-licensure in the state of Georgia. Offering instruction at the course was Dr. David Taylor, the Director of Clinical Education and a Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at Mercer University. He has provided continuing education in professional ethics and Georgia Physical Therapy jurisprudence for the last 10 years.
