Entry-Level Doctor of Occupational Therapy
The Doctor of Occupational Therapy is an entry-level professional program consisting of eight consecutive semesters (including summers) plus a six-month internship. Our graduates are prepared for entry-level positions in occupational therapy and often progress rapidly to leadership positions in the field. The program offers a rigorous education in both the basic sciences and in occupation-based practice with advanced skills in clinical practice, research, leadership, advoacacy and a capstone experiential project.. Occupational therapists must learn to participate collaboratively with other health care professionals. For this reason, core courses are shared with students in the physical therapy programs. Learning to communicate with other health care providers is important in preparation of building teamwork.
The total number of graduates who passed the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) certification examination for 2013–2015 was 105 out of 106, which is a pass rate of 99%.
