In an average week students should expect to be in class from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. every day. This time is split between the classroom, lab, and clinic.
Especially during the first semester, students hit the books more often, in study and review sessions.
Classes are generally held in the IPE building, Erwin Square, or anatomy lab on campus.
In the classroom, students might be taking part in a TBL (team-based learning) exercise, completing an individual or group readiness assessment, describing case studies, or learning new techniques and modalities.
In the anatomy lab, students dissect cadavers to learn the intricate anatomy of the human body.
But it’s not all academics. DPT students are also frequently involved in extracurricular activities within Duke and the community.
