The post-professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) tracks at Spalding University will prepare you to advance as a leader in the field of occupational therapy or as a highly-skilled practitioner in upper extremity therapy.

Both 30-credit-hour tracks are designed for licensed occupational therapy practitioners who want to progress to the doctoral level. 

We accept applications to the post-professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy program on a rolling basis. If you are admitted to the post-professional program's General track, you will be eligible to begin classes at the start of the next OTD trimester.

Please email [email protected] with questions about the admission process or call Auerbach School of Occupational Therapy (502) 588-7196.
