Post-professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy
Boston University College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences: Sargent College now offers a post-professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) program exclusively in a distance learning format. This innovative program allows students to earn their doctorate without disrupting their careers or relocating their families. Now a doctoral level education is readily accessible to occupational therapists who wish to shape the future of our profession and healthcare.
This program will prepare skilled occupational therapists to take on leadership roles in developing and testing innovative responses to healthcare needs related to occupational performance and societal participation. The post-professional OTD will develop visionary practitioners who have the necessary knowledge and skills to conduct critical evaluation of theory and evidence in their area of practice, to identify gaps or shortcomings in current intervention methods and programs, and to design innovative responses to the identified needs.
The profession is making great advances and Boston University is proud to prepare students for these exciting areas of practice through our advanced clinical degree programs.
Students will complete two courses per semester and travel to campus twice — once at the beginning of the program and again upon the completion of the degree. Students may begin the distance education post-professional OTD program during the fall, spring or summer semesters.
