Duke Pre-PT has organized a bunch of events for the coming semester. Here are a few happening in the next few weeks!
1. Seating and Mobility Clinic @ Campbell University
Saturday, January 30, 8AM-4PM
This is a hands-on learning experience with equipment available from representatives like Permobile and Sunrise. There will be PTs and OTs leading sessions on seating and mobility that include: writing letters of medical necessity, measuring seats and backs, benefits of custom sitting, documentation, coding, and much more.
Cost: $25 — BUT if we have 10 students attending we can lower the cost to $15

2. Duke DPT Students Meeting
Tuesday, February 9, 7PM – BioSci 155
Current Duke DPT Students will be coming in to speak about their experiences during college, the application process, life as a PT student, and much more! The students will also be going through some of their material that they are going to be using in a community outreach program. This is a great opportunity to hear from students who were in our shoes not too long ago!
3. Special Olympics Unified Duke-UNC Basketball Game
Saturday, March 5, 8-11AM – Brodie Gym Lower Basketball Courts
This is an awesome event hosted by the Special Olympics chapters of both Duke and UNC. The game airs on ESPN during the Duke-UNC game coverage, and you get a free t-shirt! Even if you are planning on tenting, they are working on a way to get tenters to be able to volunteer. Click on the link below to sign-up! For more details, don’t hesitate to reach out.
