Slippery Rock University continues to prep learning space in advance of its doctoral degree program in occupational therapy that goes live this June. The program, the first of its kind in the State System, will be a 36-month, year-round program for students who have earned a bachelor's degree or participate in one of the 3+3 pre-occupational therapy undergraduate tracks at the University. The program will be delivered face-to-face at SRU's Harrisville Building, which already is home to the University's physician assistant program. The new curriculum will focus on contemporary practice using evidence-based strategies to provide students with a dynamic learning experience. All classroom and clinical learning experiences will be driven by standards that are defined by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education.
