Cultivate the skills to help your patients participate more fully in their lives with a Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) degree.

Students pursuing JU’s OTD can expect to be in the program for a minimum of nine (9) academic semesters or three (3) academic years. The educational program consists of academic coursework, two full-time supervised fieldwork experiences and a 14 week doctoral capstone experience. The fieldwork experiences will be comprised of two twelve (12) week sessions occurring during the Summer and Fall semesters during the final year. Further, the doctoral residency will occur in the Spring semester of the final year of study. At the successful conclusion of all academic requirements and ACOTE accreditation, OTD students will qualify to sit for the national OT certification exam (NBCOT).
