USC Chan OS/OT China Initiative

About the China Initiative


Our vision is to improve the standards for the educational preparation of, and the clinical care provided by, occupational therapists in China. We believe that occupational therapy will be recognized as an academic and professional field in China and will operate at the highest international level.



The USC Chan Division has partnered with Peking University Health Science Center (PKUHSC) to develop a new dual-degree graduate program in occupational therapy, which welcomed its first class in Sept. 2019. Students in the USC-PKUHSC dual-degree program take two years of courses at PKUHSC to earn a master’s degree in rehabilitation therapy, and will then attend USC’s one-year post-professional doctorate of occupational therapy (OTD) program in Los Angeles.

南加州大学(南加大)陈学部已与北京大学医学部(北医)合作开设了一个作业治疗双学位研究生项目。该项目于 2019 年 9 月迎来了第一届学生。北医-南加大双学位项目的学生首先在北医进行两年的学习,获得康复治疗硕士学位,之后将在洛杉矶攻读南加大为期一年的作业治疗专业博士学位(OTD)。

The partnership promises to continue the educational evolution of occupational therapy in China, training a new generation of practitioners to provide high-quality clinical services to the estimated 85 million Chinese living with, or at risk for, a disability.
