OTD Curriculum

The OTD curriculum is a 107-credit degree program that provides professional training to develop entry-level occupational therapists with the knowledge and skills to optimize the occupational performance of individuals, communities, and populations within dynamic contexts. Students engage in on-campus learning integrated with field experiences in traditional healthcare settings and the community. The curriculum encompasses foundational science and theory, evidence-based occupational therapy assessment and intervention, and in-depth learning and practice in an area of interest through the capstone experience and project.

The mission of the Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) program is to develop clinician-scholars who translate evidence to inform occupational therapy practice, affect health care systems, and meet the occupational needs of people, organizations and populations consistent to emerging 21st century demands.

OTD Year 2 students are practicing Sensorimotor Clinical Observations in Pediatric Clinical Skills 3 with Dr. Schneider.
