Huntington University has a heritage of excellence in academics, and our first doctoral program reflects that heritage. Occupational therapy sits on the cutting edge of healthcare; our vision when so few other schools were offering doctoral programs in occupational therapy has made us a leader in OT education from the beginning.   

We are an established program with a track record of quality graduates who are highly certified and competitively placed in the field. Our renowned faculty have professional experience in the field – many are still practicing occupational therapists as well as educators – and our facilities in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Peoria, Arizona, are top-of-the-line.   

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.  

Project examples:  

  • Fitting wheelchairs in a developing country 
  • Implementing program evaluations of a healthcare system 
  • Working with an industry to address ergonomic work issues 
  • Designing therapeutic apps for occupational therapy interventions
