DPT Academics

The Duke Doctor of Physical Therapy Program is an inclusive community of scholars engaged in the discovery, dissemination, and utilization of knowledge in the optimal care of patients and the instruction of learners.

Our program delivers an evidence-based, progressive curriculum that emphasizes a team-based approach to learning, both in the classroom and in a range of clinical settings.  It also offers students a unique opportunity to explore specific areas of practice after successful completion of their foundational courses. Students have their choice of nine Advanced Practice Courses that are designed to meet their individual interests and career development goals.
