Chatham University offers students the opportunity to earn a Professional Doctorate of Occupational Therapy (OTD). This low-residency program is for occupational therapy clinicians and/or academicians who want to enhance their career and be a professional leader.
Experienced occupational therapists who hold a bachelor degree in Occupational Therapy, but not a master degree, can enroll in the Bachelor to OTD option.
OTD Program Structure
The OTD program is completed in 16 months on a part-time basis. Students are enrolled in 2-3 courses per trimester, allowing the OT clinician or academician to maintain their work status. It is our aim that the student can balance life commitments and effectively engage in new learning.
