Occupational therapists serve patients of all ages in a variety of settings. Our students complete graduate-level coursework and 6 months of full-time clinical fieldwork. During clinical rotations, students visit rehabilitation facilities, long-term care facilities, sheltered workshops, homes, community agencies, and industrial sites. During this time students have the opportunity to experience patient setting they might enter upon graduation and licensure.
The ACOTE accreditation process for the OTD program is a 3 step process. We have been granted Candidacy Status and the first OTD class began in Summer 2018.
