Doctorate Degree Program

Huntington University's doctoral program in occupational therapy will promote your development in faith, health, leadership skills, advanced practice, research and professional service.

Students in our program will complete clinical experiences in Indiana, across the country, and internationally. You will design, develop and implement an advanced practice project with faculty oversight. Examples of these projects include fitting wheelchairs in a developing country, implementing program evaluations of a healthcare system, evaluating the accessibility of a theme park, and studying the impact of grandparents raising grandchildren.

Our program location on the Parkview Hospital Randallia campus will provide a rich, educational environment where you will learn to address community and global issues in a healthcare setting.

Students with a bachelor’s degree in any discipline from a regionally accredited institution are eligible to apply for this program. Often, undergraduate students major in areas such as exercise science or psychology in preparation for a doctorate program in occupational therapy. In addition, applicants must meet other requirements and complete certain prerequisite classes to gain acceptance into the program.

The program is being developed and its accreditation is being pursued under the leadership of Dr. Ruth Ford, director of occupational therapy, and longtime expert in the occupational therapy field with more than 37 years of clinical experience. The program has been approved by the Higher Learning Commission and also has been granted candidacy status by ACOTE.

At Huntington University, our doctoral program in occupational therapy can help you impact our world for Christ. Contact our Admissions Counselor and visit our Frequently Asked Questions page today to learn more about how you can earn a doctoral degree in occupational therapy.
