OTA Program Outcomes

Course sequences evolve from introductory material to higher levels of content requiring critical thinking and problem solving capability on the part of the student. Progression through the program requires that students incorporate aspects from all courses in the format of an integrated lab. The integrated lab will be used as an assessment of student knowledge progression.

Upon successful of the OTA program the OTA graduate will:

  • Demonstrate qualities of leadership and social responsibility. These qualities will be apparent within the occupational therapy field, professional settings, and within community.
  • Apply critical thinking and problem solving to the provision of occupational therapy services evidenced by successful completion of fieldwork practicums.
  • Incorporate the principles of communication, advocacy and healthcare education into practice.
  • Exhibit commitment to individual and professional growth as a lifelong learner.
  • Demonstrate collaboration with other healthcare providers to promote the full human potential.
