PSU PT club is a place where students of all 3 cohorts join together to support one another throughout the DPT curriculum. It is also open to underclassmen at PSU who are interested in furthering their involvement in the field of PT.
As an incoming first year, you’ll be paired with a second-year student through our mentor/mentee program to help acclimate you into the club and the DPT program as a whole. As a club we encourage new learning opportunities for our members through hosting a variety of dynamic guest speakers at our monthly meetings. We also work to promote the profession as a whole through philanthropic community outreach activities, fundraising and on-campus activities at Plymouth State University. All club members you are given the opportunity to hold leadership roles through our executive board starting in their first year of membership. Since 2018, we have attended both state and national conferences and have had multiple students present research studies alongside faculty members at APTA’s Combined Sections Meeting (CSM).
