Duke's Doctor of Physical Therapy Program Celebrates its Past and Looks Toward its Future
During its three quarters of a century, the program has evolved from a tiny certificate course whose total enrollment you could count on one hand into a leading doctoral program with a fleet of premier faculty, more than 200 students, innovative learning practices, thriving research projects, active clinical opportunities, and a global reach.
It’s been a remarkable journey, and the DPT program is celebrating its 75th birthday this year with a series of events that will culminate in a gala at the Washington Duke Inn on September 15, 2018.
