Now Accepting Applications for Fall 2016

We recommend that students submit their Fall 2016 applications as soon as possible as space in our cohort program is limited.

Admission Requirements

If you do not currently hold a masters degree, but you do have a Bachelor Degree in Occupational Therapy, you may apply for our Bachelor to OTD Bridge Program. Admissions requirements will be the same.

Chatham University Master of Occupational Therapy students have the option to apply for early admission to the Professional Doctorate of Occupational Therapy (OTD) program in the 4th academic semester of the MOT program. If admitted, students will be granted a "conditional" acceptance, and will enroll in 2 online OTD courses; one during the spring semester (OTD 760) and one during the summer semester (OTD 752) of their final year in the MOT program with no additional tuition charges. Full admission is granted after the following criteria are met:

For Chatham University MOT students, the OTD Program consists of 9 courses for a total of 27 credits. One course, OTD 742 Advanced Practice Concepts and Skills is substituted for by OTH 601, as content is previously covered in the MOT curriculum. Additionally, the first onsite visit to campus in OTD 760 is waived.
