PRA Partners with Duke University School of Medicine for New Residency Opportunities
Professional Rehab Associates is expanding its clinical education offerings! We are proud to announce our growing partnership with Duke University School of Medicine as a residency host for their new Orthopaedic Hybrid Physical Therapy Residency.
This opportunity allows for Professional Rehab Associates to continue its commitment to bringing qualified, capable individuals onto the team to serve the patients of the New River Valley.
The Duke Doctor of Physical Therapy program, in collaboration with Duke Health Rehabilitation Services, has created a new Hybrid Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Residency Program for physical therapists who have earned their DPT degree and seek to advance their knowledge and skills.
The program is seeking applicants to be part of the new one-year program that launches in the fall of 2024.
This is the first step in Duke DPT’s efforts to expand post-professional residency and fellowship training opportunities to more clinicians through a new distance-based residency model.
Focused on the orthopaedic specialty, DPT's first hybrid residency capitalizes on Duke’s educational excellence, clinical care, research, and leadership. Duke DPT faculty and Duke’s Rehabilitation Services clinicians will share their expertise throughout the year.
Call for Applicants
Duke DPT seeks nationwide applicants who are eager to become leaders in treating orthopaedic conditions.
The application process opens on Nov. 1, and admission decisions will be made through May 31, 2024. The program begins Sept. 1, 2024.
The American Board of Physical Therapy Education Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTERFE) requires residency programs to begin before applying for accreditation. Duke DPT will submit its application for accreditation within the first year.
