Occupational Therapy Doctorate (Entry-Level)
The Occupational Therapy Doctorate (OTD) Program immerses students in an intensive 120 credit hour curriculum designed for entry-level competence. The curriculum includes coursework, clinical fieldwork, and a doctoral capstone project. The program admits 36 students each summer and spans three consecutive semesters (summer, fall, spring) for each of three years. Students will be eligible to take the National Board for Certification in Occupational therapy (NBCOT®) exam after they successfully complete all program requirements, and the program receives full accreditation status. The UNLV Entry-Level OTD Program was granted Candidacy Status by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE®) in 2020.
