Physical therapy students

Physical Therapy Exploration Program (PEP)

The Physical Therapy Exploration Program (PEP) is a 1-day career exploration program for rising high-school juniors and seniors and rising college freshmen and sophomores.

“I greatly enjoyed attending this program. Thank you all so much for an educational and exciting day.” - PEP Day Attendee

By participating in PEP Day, students will have the opportunity to: 

  • Learn more about the MUSC Doctor of Physical Therapy program.
  • Tour the MUSC campus and shadow a therapist in a physical therapy unit in the University Hospital.
  • Meet with current faculty members to discuss information related to the academic program and the PT profession.
  • Chat with current students in the program to gain a student’s perspective on applying to graduate school, student life, and academics at MUSC.

Due to COVID-19, the fourth annual PEP Day will be held virtually over three days, on August 10, 11, and 12, 2020 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. The virtual format will be similar to our in-person event and students will participate in activities, hear from guest speakers, and learn about the profession and MUSC's program.
