Division of Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapy students work in the STEPS lab with students from the other Health Sciences schools, giving them the opportunity to simulate real-life scenarios with different health care professionals.

The new doctoral program

The accrediting agency of OT educational programs (ACOTE) is requiring that new occupational therapists entering the profession have an Occupational Therapy Doctoral (OTD) degree as of 2027. As part of this transition, we anticipate accepting the first class of doctoral students in June 2021. This means that the last class of students into the master’s degree program will be admitted in June 2020. Afterwards, all new students entering the OT program will have to complete a bachelors degree prior to admission. Please check the web site frequently in the upcoming months as more information about the transition is published.
