The UVM Entry-Level Doctorate in Occupational Therapy (OTD) welcomed its first cohort in Fall, ’22. The UVM OTD program is currently in the candidacy phase of accreditation. Members of VOTA assisted in the curricular design, and the program is designed with a strong experiential learning component that blends the art and science of the occupational therapy profession. It is an integral program of the Department of Rehabilitation and Movement Science in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences (CNHS). CNHS is home to approximately 1200 students in eight different health professions comprising seven undergraduate and six graduate degree programs including an interdisciplinary PhD. The UVM OTD program is committed to inter-professional education, ensuring students are positioned well for entry-level practice, supporting the local OT community, and utilizing educational innovation. https://www.uvm.edu/cnhs/rms/entry-level-occupational-therapy-doctorate-otd
