DPT Virtual Fair Volunteers

Starts: 09-16-2021
Location: Online Opportunity

Note:  All necessary volunteers are scheduled


It is almost time of year again! The Doctor of Physical Therapy Virtual Fair will take place on September 16, 2021 from 10:00a to 8:00p EST. This is an opportunity for prospective DPT students to speak with DPT admissions professionals and APTA staff about the application and matriculation process and learn more about the profession of physical therapy.

We are also using this year as a pilot program to open the DPT Virtual Fair up to high school students, advisors, parents, etc. In doing so we will have a chat room specifically for them where they can ask general questions about the profession of physical therapy, what physical therapy is, what physical therapist do, what it takes to be a PT, and more.

We are seeking individuals who are willing to join APTA staff in this chat room, interact with attendees, and share your PT experience. If this is you, please complete the application and sign up for one or more of the time slots below. This is a virtual event so all you need is a computer or laptop and a stable internet connection.
