Students interested in obtaining a Clinical Doctorate in Occupational Therapy (OTD) can now pursue it via education provider Evidence in Motion (EIM).
According to a media release from Evidence in Motion, the program, which can be completed in 18 to 24 months using EIM’s blended learning model or 100% online, requires the completion of 30 total credit hours. Students can choose either the Single Program Track or the Dual Track format, both of which require 15 core credits of OTD coursework.
The Single Program Track format requires the core credits plus 15 additional credits of the student’s choosing from the OTD elective course catalog. The Dual Program Track, which combines the OTD with a certification program, is composed of the 15 core credits plus 15 additional credits that will be primarily transferred from their certificate program of choice.
These certificate programs include hand therapy, concussion management, executive program in private practice management, geriatric, industrial health, stroke recovery (in partnership with NeuroRecovery Training Institute), and therapeutic pain specialist (in partnership with International Spine and Pain Institute), the release continues.
“Evidence In Motion has made huge strides in the physical therapy world with the Postprofessional DPT program, and we felt it was the right time to begin offering the same model to occupational therapists,” says Jenna Thacker, OTD, OTR/L, program director, in the release. “I am honored to be directing the program and look forward to working with our world-class faculty to enhance both the knowledge and the leadership skills of our students.
The first cohort of students began the program in July. The next cohort will begin in September 2016.
