Occupational Therapy Doctorate - Post Professional


The College of Health Professions at MUSC offers a 30-credit Post-Professional Occupational Therapy Doctorate. This on-line program allows working occupational therapists who have graduated from an ACOTE accredited occupational therapy education program the opportunity to advance their educational and professional goals. This program provides occupational therapists with (1) advanced leadership skills as an increased number of practicing occupational therapists are attaining leadership roles, (2) a broader understanding of population health and health care delivery models in a rapidly changing healthcare environment, (3) an increased ability to rigorously implement evidence-based practice as practice techniques advance, and (4) instructional skills for teaching in educational programs as well as professional and community settings.
