Program Objectives

Through a combination of academic courses and full-time fieldwork experiences, you’ll learn to articulate OT theory, analyze practice-related evidence, and apply evaluation strategies, so you can effectively plan and implement OT services and treatment. You’ll also expand your skills for developing and modifying occupation-based intervention plans for individual clients based on assessment results, priorities and discharge needs, environmental factors, and expected outcomes. Additionally, students collaborate with peers to interpret and apply interdisciplinary, evidence-based research to OT practice to explore how science informs practice and practice informs science.
