Occupational Therapy

Welcome to Loma Linda University. The faculty and staff in the Department of Occupational Therapy  appreciate the opportunity to share our program with you.

Occupational Therapy has been an exciting career for many of us and as health care continues to evolve, our profession is encouraged to "think outside of the box " leading to exciting opportunities and growth. 

Our courses are woven with threads of service-learning, occupation-based practice, evidence-based practice and health.  Students at Loma Linda University have a unique opportunity to participate in community-based fieldwork, service-learning, and health promotion supporting the mission of our University.

 The specific sequence of courses involves 11 quarters which includes six months of Level II fieldwork and three Level I fieldwork experiences. After the first year, you have the summers off.

Our Entry-level Master's program begins each June and prepares you to take the National Certification exam.  To learn more continue in our website or attend the next Information Session.

Our Department is also proud to offer a post professional Online Doctor of Occupational Therapy Program.  This degree is rich in deep level learning and research preparing practitioners for futures in leaership. health promotion, and academia,  Visit our OTD page for more information on this program.
