About us




The Occupational Therapy (OT) program was established in 1988 as a division of the School of Rehabilitation Medicine , and the OT division became an independent school in 2000.

The O.T. program is a 4-year entry-level educational program that offers a Bachelor of Science degree to the students. We enroll about fifty new students per year. The OT program places an emphasis on integrating fieldwork experience with academic learning and strives to ensure that students are equipped with updated theoretical knowledge and excellent clinical skills. The students have to complete three years of intensive coursework and one year of internship which includes a 36-week full-time fieldwork in physical disability, pediatric, and psychiatric settings.

The curriculum is designed to provide theory-based lectures combined with abundant hours of clinical practice, as to prepare the student as an OT professional who meets World Federation of Occupational Therapy (WFOT) curricular requirements. Our OT program was accredited by the WFOT in 1998, and underwent successful re-accreditation in 2003, 2008, and 2013.
