Occupational Therapy Doctorate/PhD in Health Education
The dual degree of occupational therapy doctorate (OTD) and doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) in health education is designed to meet the growing need for occupational therapy faculty members who are prepared to conduct and mentor research. The graduates of the dual degree program will not only have the credentials but also the skills needed for successful careers in academia.
Admission to the OTD/Ph.D. is a two-step process. The first step is to be admitted to the OTD program. See the occupational therapy doctorate section for admission requirements. During the OTD program, the student completes the second step by applying for admission to the Ph.D. in health education. Students may apply up to 18 credits of their OTD program for credit in the Ph.D. program. Please contact the occupational therapy program at email@example.com or the school of population health for more information on the dual degree.
