The Occupational Therapy Doctorate prepares you for a career as a practicing occupational therapist in clinical or community-based settings. The three-year program utilizes community-based fieldwork and a required 14-week Capstone. You will learn skills to become a scholarly professional and collaborative and enduring change agent.
Our Accreditation Status
Our CSU-OT program consistently ranks in the top 10 occupational therapy programs in the U.S. Using a carefully considered process, our faculty developed a new OTD program of study that has been approved at all University levels. We currently have candidacy status from our accrediting body, ACOTE® (6116 Executive Blvd., Suite 200, North Bethesda, MD 20852-4929, (301) 652-6611, email@example.com). Although our OTD is not yet currently fully accredited, these steps lay the foundation for the accreditation process.
ACOTE® accreditation is required before graduates are eligible to sit for the exam administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy. CSU anticipates completing the accreditation process six months before any students have completed the university’s requirements to take the exam. After successful completion of the NBCOT exam, a graduate will be an Occupational Therapist, Registered.
