You will have access to some of the top faculty in the profession of physical therapy, will have interdisciplinary opportunities, receive mentorship from current DPT students, faculty, clinicians, and admission specialists; as well as have opportunities to take advantage of Duke’s state of the art facilities.

To be eligible to participate, you must be a current undergraduate student (freshman – senior) and must have a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher. All students are welcome to apply; however, preference will be given to demographics that are underrepresented within the profession of physical therapy, disadvantaged/first generation to attend college, or students interested in serving underrepresented/underserved populations.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!
