UNC DPT Exploratory Day
The UNC Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) Exploratory Program aims to extend our reach to applicants and students who are from groups who are underrepresented within the physical therapy profession, first-generation college students, and those interested in serving in underserved or rural areas of North Carolina. Participants will gain insight from current UNC DPT students and faculty, experience a lecture on foundational topics in physical therapy education, acquire helpful information to assist with applying to a PT program, and participate in other professional development activities.
