One of the First; One of the Best
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 has a network of alums who are making contributions to the field of occupational therapy. Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the National Certification Examination for the Occupational Therapist that the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) administers.
Practical Training through Clinical Experiences
Students in our program complete clinical experiences in Indiana, across the country, and internationally. As part of the program, 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 an industry to address ergonomic work issues, or designing therapeutic apps for OT interventions.
Close Proximity to Resources
Located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on the Parkview Hospital Randallia campus, the OTD program provides a rich educational environment where you can learn to address community and global issues in a health care setting.
