#DPTStudent Hashtag Project

Regis University class of 2015


Did you know that there are over 200 accredited Doctor of Physical Therapy programs in the United States? This means we as DPT students have a lot of new friends to make! The #DPTStudent Twitter chat aims to connect many DPT students all over the country and perhaps the world. We all, at a minimum, have one thing in common and that is we all chose physical therapy as our career. We are a group of passionate, motivated, and caring individuals. We support each other and learn from one another. The possibilities of what we can achieve if we work together as a team of DPT students is endless. Plus, having friends all over the country is always a good thing!

 The physical therapy community is connecting on social media and we as students need to be a part of that. We urge you to get over your fear of hashtags and join us for the first #DPTStudent Twitter chat on Wednesdays at 9pm EST!
