Bridge to Ph.D. Program
The Bridge to Ph.D. program offers occupational therapists who have completed a postprofessional clinical doctorate in occupational therapy (O.T.D. or Dr.O.T.) an easy transition to a research doctoral program.
The admissions criteria and curriculum for the Bridge to Ph.D. program are the same as the Ph.D. programs; however students in the bridge program can transfer up to 12 credits from their previously completed postprofessional doctoral program.
Transferred credits are accepted in lieu of up to two core courses and up to two elective courses and are subject to evaluation of course syllabi and grades by the Ph.D. program director.
