About the residency
The doctoral residency program at OTFP is designed to train occupational therapists to provide lifestyle interventions that address the most common chronic conditions facing society and our healthcare system today. In addition to patient care, opportunities to develop leadership skills include public speaking, participating on interdisciplinary teams, and program development. In working directly with a clinical preceptor, faculty mentor and clinical faculty colleagues, occupational therapists who complete their residency at OTFP are prepared to become leaders in our profession. Following the completion of a residency at OTFP, students will be able to utilize clinical skills that transfer to various settings, feel confident in developing and implementing wellness programs, and be able to practice in emerging areas such as chronic disease management, health and wellness, and primary care.
All students are eligible to apply for this residency opportunity.
