Hap Zarzour joined the Duke Athletics staff in 1992 and serves as the department’s Executive Director of Athletic Medicine. He has worked with the Duke football program during his entire tenure.

The goal of this working group is to enhance the experience of Duke student-athletes by providing an integrative approach to the care of each individual athlete throughout his or her collegiate career while continuing to cultivate partnerships with the Duke University Hospital, Duke Sports Science Institute, Duke Student Health and Duke Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) as part of its holistic approach to student-athlete health.
A 1982 graduate of Bowling Green, Zarzour came to Duke after an eight-year stint at Western Michigan. In 1983, he earned a master’s degree from Western Michigan and was a summer intern with the Detroit Lions.
