Entry-Level Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD)
The MOT is being taught out and the program is transitioning to the Entry-Level Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD). The Entry-level Occupational Therapy Doctoral degree program applied for accreditation and on December 2020, was granted Candidacy Status by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA).
The program must have a pre-accreditation review, complete an on-site evaluation, and be granted Accreditation Status before its graduates 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).
