Post-Professional Programs

A Leader in Post-Professional OT Education

The Department of Occupational Therapy at NYU Steinhardt offers post-professional programs in occupational therapy leading to the MA, OTD, and PhD degrees for certified occupational therapists. These programs integrate the theoretical foundation of occupational therapy and the knowledge, clinical skills, and attitudes necessary for engaging in evidence-based practice.

Students develop analytical skills necessary for assuming leadership roles while cultivating a network of professional contacts through their coursework, clinical experiences, and collaborative studies. One of our most outstanding features is the large peer support network provided by our active cadre of post-professional students.

The agenda for scholarly inquiry in the department's post-professional program is to strengthen the applied body of knowledge of occupational therapy. The program achieves this through further development, refinement, and assessment of the effectiveness of evidence-based practice and directly related topical issues.
