Entry-Level Doctorate of Occupational Therapy (OTD)

The Chan Division has initiated the process to transition the entry-level master’s to an accredited entry-level doctoral (OTD) program. This process requires review and approval by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education® (ACOTE®) and the transition could occur as early as the 2021 application cycle (program start in 2022).

Beginning in Spring 2021, USC Chan will offer admissions information sessions for the proposed entry-level OTD program, but please note that because this program is still in review, only limited information can be provided.

Please review the frequently asked questions for additional information. Our website will provide the latest updates throughout the transition process as they become available.
