Curriculum Design

The Puget Sound Occupational Therapy Program's curriculum design has two primary and related goals, which are to produce MSOT graduates who possess:

  1. The competencies to enable clients in general occupational therapy practice settings to participate in occupation; and
  2. The foundation needed for lifelong learning to maintain and enhance professional competence, including professional specialization, research, administration, and teaching. 

And DrOT graduates who possess:

  1. The competencies to deliver excellent occupational therapy; and
  2. The motivation and skills to engage in life-long learning.

These goals are conceptualized in the following graphics.
