Huntington University's doctoral program in occupational therapy (OTD) is a 3-year, full-time degree program that will promote your development in faith, health and wellness, leadership skills, advanced practice, research and professional service. 

The OTD program at Huntington University is fully-accredited and graduates of the program will be eligible to sit for the National Certification Examination for the Occupational Therapist, administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT).

Students in our program will complete clinical experiences in Indiana, across the country, and internationally. You will design, develop and implement an advanced practice project with faculty oversight. Examples of these projects include fitting wheelchairs in a developing country, implementing program evaluations of a health care system, working with industry to address ergonomic work issues or designing therapeutic apps for OT interventions.

Our program is located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on the Parkview Hospital Randallia campus, which provides a rich, educational environment where you will learn to address community and global issues in a health care setting.

Students with a bachelor’s degree in any discipline from a regionally accredited institution are eligible to apply for this program. Applicants must also meet the minimum admission requirements and complete prerequisite classes. The application process is outlined here
