ACE Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Institute is committed to providing volunteer and observation opportunities for interested individuals. Whether these individuals are interested in business, the medical field, the world of outpatient physical/occupational therapy, or just wanting to volunteer their services and share their talents, we welcome them. It is our desire to serve and teach all whom we encounter, so we aim to share our daily work experiences and knowledge with volunteers and observers. They will be exposed to and gain an appreciation of professional and ethical behavior as well as our unique approach to patient care unmatched by any other organization.
Expectations of volunteers and observers are no different than that expected of ACE-PTSMI staff relative to punctuality, neatness and pride in personal appearance, an altruistic approach to patient care, appropriate and professional interaction with everyone they encounter, and cooperative and constructive interaction with peers. We aim for these individuals to demonstrate interest and enthusiasm in people and the tasks at hand. They are expected to function under the supervision of a qualified staff member and to abide by the company policies and procedures at all times. They will understand that they are not to participate in any patient’s care. Formalized orientation will occur and paperwork will be completed to demonstrate the interns, volunteers and/or observers’ agreement to this policy and any other associated requirements. If you interested in volunteering or observing, please contact us at email@example.com
