Learning Physical Therapy

If you want to volunteer or observe in physical therapy, but aren’t sure how to go about doing this, click on the Volunteering¬†at Duke tab.

The Prerequisites tab has a document with the requirements for every school. But it’s also a good idea to browse the PTCAS (the common application) wesbite (link is on right) to check school’s requirements because that is the most accurate. It also has information regarding application deadlines, observation hours required, etc. Calling the contact person for admissions is also a direct way to get your questions answered!

The Private PT Clinics & Other Facilities tab presents the contact information for several outpatient clinics and hospitals in and around Durham in order to broaden your PT experience while in the area.

If you’re not sure what courses to take at Duke to get your PT prereqs, browse through Coursework samples of Duke grads who are now physical therapists.
