Advanced Medical (, a leading provider of travel therapy services nationwide, recently took part in the 8th annual Duke DPT career fair. The event was held in the University Ballroom of the Hilton Durham hotel. DPT students from neighboring Elon University also attended the gathering. Advanced Medical was on hand for the 5th time and was recognized as a Silver Level Sponsor for its financial contributions to the Duke DPT program.

“Our emphasis on professional development, signified by our unique mentoring program was well received,” stated Ryan Lantz, Director of University Development at Advanced Medical. “It is always a pleasure to interact with the knowledgeable and engaging students put forth from Elon and Duke.”

The Duke DPT program was established in 1943 and always finds itself among the nation's top rated programs. Against the backdrop of a world-class medical facility, Duke DPT has gained international acclaim and boasts program directors that have all served as president at some point of the APTA and CPA (Canadian Physiotherapy Association). The Elon DPT program debuted with much fanfare in 2003. In 2012, the program moved into the Gerald L. Francis Center, a building designed with meaningful input from DPT faculty. The facility is the centerpiece of teaching on the beautiful campus and is an ideal environment for hands-on practice.

Advanced Medical started a New Graduate Program ( in 2008. The program is known for its layers of clinical support and clinical guidance. The program also provides free access to a continuing education platform, tuition reward, and a mentorship component that has proven enormously popular. Advanced Medical continues to support prestigious therapy programs across the country with sponsorship dollars and interactive campus visits. The New Graduate Program also provides young therapists the opportunity to work with diverse patient populations in new grad friendly facilities. These facilities are well equipped to bring along a new grad therapist slowly, rather than putting them in situations that could harm their professional development.

Advanced Medial is a full-service staffing agency that specializes in the placement of occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech language pathologists. In 2013, Advanced Medical was awarded a place on the Inc. 500/5000 list of fastest growing companies. Recently, they have expanded their operations with an OR nursing division, as well as a school therapy division. Advanced Medical is headquartered in Port Orange, Fl, with a west coast office in Denver, Co.
