Occupational Therapy (PhD)
Seriously consider applying to our Ph.D. program if you would like to advance in your career as a researcher and academician. The program is aimed at the working professional who may not be able to relocate for full-time study. Our program is offered in a primarily distance education format with some scheduled on-campus classes. Students travel to the our beautiful main campus in South Florida once each semester for a long weekend of coursework. The rest of the semester's coursework is completed through online learning technology, asynchronous discussion postings, and live voice discussions. There is a one-week on-campus Summer Research Institute, a research residency requirement, and a qualifying process prior to starting your dissertation. You will visit us for an on-campus new student orientation and in-processing before the start of the first term to help prepare you for the program of studies. The Ph.D. program and curriculum includes OT core courses, multi-disciplinary core courses, electives, research residency, qualifying process, and completion of a dissertation study and report.
