UIndy OT programs

UIndy's School of Occupational Therapy offers the following comprehensive and hands-on programs:

Entry-level Doctor of Occupational Therapy

Entry-level Master of Occupational Therapy

Postprofessional programs in Occupational Therapy

Our entry-level programs (OTD and MOT) differ in two ways: the format and the clinical experiences. The OTD program is full-time and requires an additional level of in-depth field work experience. The MOT program is part-time and works well for career changers and those who wish to continue working while going to school.

What is occupational therapy?

Occupational therapists are committed to restoring independence, function and the performance of daily activities by individuals of all ages in their home, school, workplace and community. Occupational therapy maximizes the fit between what individuals want to accomplish, their capacity to do so, and the resources needed.

As the U.S. healthcare system continues to move toward home and community-based services, the roles for occupational therapists will only increase. Occupational therapy is consistently ranked as a “best job” in many national polls.
