Reach your Goal of Becoming an Occupational Therapist

What is Occupational Therapy?

一道本不卡免费高清Occupational therapy is a rehabilitation profession that helps people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the use of everyday activities (occupations). Occupations are a keystone to daily well-being.

一道本不卡免费高清Occupational therapy practitioners enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent-- or live better with --injury, illness or disability. This may include adapting the task or the environment to increase participation and performance.

Degree: Creighton University offers a Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) degree through a partnership with Regis University. The Creighton Regis Occupational Therapy Collaboration is the first partnership of its kind among Jesuit universities. There is a general shortage of occupational therapists in the Rocky Mountain region. We hope to encourage our students to fill positions where they are most needed in rural Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana.

Format: Students attend for 8 semesters and complete instructional coursework online, taught and administered by Creighton faculty and staff. Students attend the Regis Northwest Campus and around Colorado to complete the experiential portion of their education including OTD labs, simulation center experiences, service learning and anatomy lab. Fieldwork and clinical rotations are coordinated through the Omaha campus and there are many opportunities for nationwide experiences.

Class Size:一道本不卡免费高清 The Creighton Regis pathway program enrolls 22 students each fall.
