Post-Professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy

The Post-professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy (DrOT) Program is designed to fit all levels of experience, whether you are a new entry-level occupational therapist or a seasoned one. The twelve month curriculum is designed to be student-centered and to support students’ development of advanced practice skills that support their career goals. To that end, students in the Program are required to articulate an area of concentration and related learning outcomes that will guide them in developing a doctoral thesis project, shaping course assignments, and selecting authentic learning experiences. Students will enter the DrOT Program with a range of professional experience and interests, which will enhance the learning of all.

DrOT students will also have opportunities to interact with entry-level MSOT students, developing mentoring, teaching, and collaborative skills in classroom activities, clinic settings, and through thesis projects.
