A T Still University of Health Sciences
This Post-Professional Occupational Therapy Doctorate Online is a post-professional online healthcare degree program for those already holding an entry-level, professional degree in occupational therapy. The mission of the degree is to enable occupational therapists to develop roles and skills beyond that of the therapist-clinician, to educate them to become practitioner-scholars who can translate knowledge (including cross-disciplinary theories and research) into practice and who are capable of serving as agents of change in new and expanded arenas. In just two years, graduates advance beyond the role of clinician to become leaders who create visionary new community-based health and wellness programs.
Faculty members provide expert online instruction to online degree students. Interaction with a variety of instructors offers students exposure to a variety of teaching styles, healthcare- and education-related backgrounds and experiences that contribute to a well-rounded education fostering personal and professional growth.
