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 careers and advance to professional leadership.

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 will take two classes at a time, 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.
