Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (M.S.)

The Master of Science Program in Occupational Therapy at Wilmington College is designed to prepare graduates to become highly competent and professional health care providers, with the unique capacity to transition from population to population, through a variety of contexts, even in a single day. This versatility is a tremendous asset and can serve to increase the value of the practitioner and the demand for their services, especially in rural communities, where services are very often in high demand.

The Wilmington College OT Program has been intentionally designed to prepare graduates to be able to work independently in the community. To support students in being successful in independent practice the program has also developed a formal mentoring program to provide support from experienced practitioners for up to a full year.

Prospective students can apply through the national OT CAS system. No GRE’s are required, and the program accepts up to 24 new students into a new cohort each January. The program has been approved by the Ohio Department of Higher Education and the Higher Learning Commission and is in the process of pursuing accreditation with the Accreditation Council of Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE).

All other policies, specific to the program, can be found in the OT Program’s Student Manual, which is distributed at orientation.
