Thank you for your interest in supporting the Duke Doctor of Physical Therapy program! The Duke School of Medicine and Department of Orthopaedics are actively working to increase contributions in support of both our annual fund and student scholarships.
In case you haven’t heard the exciting news, we are very pleased to share that the Duke Doctor of Physical Therapy Program is now ranked the #10 Physical Therapy Program in the country by U.S.News & World Report!
Also, did you know that our students have a 100 percent ultimate pass rate on the national licensing examination for physical therapists, and the employment rate for our recent graduates is 100 percent?
This is all wonderful for graduating students, current students, and prospective students to know as they either graduate, continue their education, or consider our program. It is also great for our alumni to know and to feel great pride in where they received their education and training.
You can make a difference to the Duke DPT Program in two ways:
DPT Annual Fund: these unrestricted dollars touch every area of the DPT Program and ensure state-of-the-art education and training for future physical therapists.
We are grateful to you and the other alumni of the Duke Doctor of Physical Therapy Program for your support and your esteemed partnership as we educate future leaders in health and medicine. We are making forward progress because of your meaningful generosity.
