Occupational Therapy

OTD curriculum

We are in the process of making some minor revisions to our existing OTD curriculum to best reflect contemporary practice and meet ACOTE accreditation standards. We are doing a gradual phase-in of these curricular changes for cohorts already enrolled in the OTD program. Therefore, each cohort has a slightly different curriculum plan:

Students must successfully complete 24 weeks of Level II fieldwork and a 14-week doctoral capstone experience within 24 months of completion of all didactic coursework to graduate with the entry-level OTD degree and be eligible to sit for the National Board Certification in Occupational Therapy Exam.

Additional requirements regarding program progression, retention, and graduation requirements are located in the MU OT Student Handbook
