Program Description:

We're a dynamic program housed within the College of Health, which is part of the Health Sciences Center of the University of Utah. This gives us a strong interface of colleagues and resources with whom to collaborate. These include: Communication Science and Disorders, Exercise and Sport Science, Nutrition, Gerontology, Health Promotion and Education, Nursing, Parks, Recreation and Tourism, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, and School of Medicine. The professional program leading to a MOT is rooted in occupation and occupational science. Central to the teaching mission of the Division are strong occupational therapy skills, research and technology. The program has numerous innovative teaching components including a Level II fieldwork focus on health settings and community-service settings. We are committed to educating strong clinicians for the unfolding future. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NBCOT Program Statistics The 2007 graduating class achieved a 100% pass rate as first-time test takers.
