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

The Vermont Assistive Technology Program (VATP) is Vermont’s federal AT Act Program. The AT Act Programs help individuals of all ages find accessible solutions to overcome barriers at home, work, and in the community as related to disability and aging related needs. VATP is managed by the Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living and partners with the Center on Disability and Community Inclusion (CDCI) at the University of Vermont. The Mission of the Vermont Assistive Technology Program is to support full access and integration for Vermonters with disabilities and aging related needs, in education, work and their communities. Our Vision is that everyone’s potential will be supported holistically and that each Vermonter will be provided with opportunities for independence and self-determination. Assistive Technology will be incorporated across all systems to create access to every environment in our state. The Vermont Assistive Technology Program is supported by the Administration for Community Living (ACL), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of a financial assistance award totaling $447,588.00 with 100 percent funding by ACL/HHS.
