Welcome to Loma Linda University. Our Department of Occupational Therapy faculty and staff appreciate the opportunity to share our program with you. Occupational Therapy has been an exciting career for many of us and as health care changes continue, our profession is encouraged to "think outside of the box." What opportunities and challenges this presents to each one of us.
The entry level master's program prepares the student to take the National Board Certification in occupational therapy after their third year of study. A specific sequence of courses is followed for 33 months with emphasis on patient handling, skills, research, administration, case management, prevention, and program development. Clinical practicums and affiliations are also included in the course sequence. Students are active learners throughout the academic process. This program begins in mid June of each year.
The doctorate in OT program uses an online format and includes a research and professional program development project.
