Mission & Goals

Doctor of Occupational Therapy Program Mission:

 

To prepare practice scholars, educational innovators, and professional leaders who utilize clinically meaningful research in the implementation of best practice to meet the changing demands of the Occupational Therapy profession.

The OTD faculty is committed to providing a learner-centered, occupation-based, hybrid program that prepares doctoral-degree-level occupational therapy practitioners with the requisite clinical reasoning skills and professional values to be responsive to the occupational needs of persons, organizations and populations within the communities they serve. This Mission Statement is consistent with that of the University and describes the unique role of the program in preparing graduates to be responsible citizens, educated leaders, dedicated scholars and skilled professionals who meet the workforce and healthcare needs of residents of Texas and beyond.
