Welcome from the division of Occupational Therapy


Hello, and Welcome to West Virginia University’s Division of Occupational Therapy! The occupational therapy program admitted its first students in 1996, and remains an integral part of the School of Medicine in the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center. Our OT program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE). Typically, students complete two years of prerequisite coursework, and then apply to the OT program. If accepted, students then complete three years of OT academic course and lab work, as well as clinical rotations called fieldworks, ultimately graduating with a Master of Occupational Therapy degree.

West Virginia University (WVU) is an exciting and inviting academic setting for students to complete their college careers. Located in award winning Morgantown, WV, near the borders of PA, MD, and OH, WVU is home to approximately 30,000 students. With its many sporting events featuring nationally ranked Division I collegiate teams, countless student clubs and organizations, and numerous University sponsored events, there is always something to do at WVU.

On behalf of myself, the faculty, and the staff representing the Division of Occupational Therapy, I wish to thank you for exploring our program site. Should you have any questions about OT at WVU, please feel free to contact us.

Sincerely,
Randy P. McCombie, PhD, OTR/L
