Caring is a professional calling for physical therapists. Providing physical therapy services to those without access to care for financial reasons, lack of availability of services, or in the event of a disaster, are a moral and ethical obligation of physical therapists. 

APTA's Code of Ethics for the Physical Therapist and Standards for Ethical Conduct for the Physical Therapist Assistant specify that APTA members provide pro bono physical therapy services and/or support organizations that meet the health needs of people who are economically disadvantaged, uninsured, or underinsured.

 Educational objectives:

1. Describe the benefits of operating physical therapy pro bono services within a free medical clinic.
2. Describe the benefits of operating physical therapy pro bono services with students in administrative roles.
3. Describe ways to address liability concerns in the United States. 
4. Articulate steps to grow and sustain ethical and effective physical therapy pro bono services in the United States. 
5. Describe resources to assist in growing and sustaining ethical and effective physical therapy pro bono services in the United States.
