The entry-level occupational therapy doctoral degree program has
been granted candidacy status by the Accreditation Council for
Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational
Therapy Association (AOTA), located at 4720 Montgomery Lane, Suite
200, Bethesda, MD 20814-3449. ACOTE's telephone number c/o AOTA is
(301) 652-AOTA and its Web address is www.aota.org.
Once accreditation of the program has been obtained, its graduates will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination for the occupational therapist administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). After successful completion of this exam, the individual will be an Occupational Therapist, Registered (OTR). In addition, most states require licensure in order to practice; however, state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination. Note that a felony conviction may affect a graduate’s ability to be able to take the NBCOT certification examination or attain state licensure. Students must complete Level II fieldwork and experiential requirements within 24 months following completion of the didactic portion of the program.
