Cultural Competency for Healthcare Providers

PTH 6102 1 Quarter Hour
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Seeks to address the American Physical Therapy Association’s mandate that physical therapists have the necessary skills, knowledge, and attitudes to treat patients with a wide range of differences. These differences are not limited to race or ethnicity alone; therefore, it is not sufficient to instruct students in the characteristics of a particular non-Anglo-European culture. As noted in the Code of Ethics, physical therapists must be able to understand, value, and individualize patient communication and interventions to reflect these differences. Offers students an opportunity to begin developing an understanding and respect for cultural and personal differences and to build a foundation for further professional growth.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
