Application Process

Much like the field of occupational therapy, the Department of Occupational Therapy takes a holistic approach when reviewing each application. We are seeking well rounded, versatile students that will go on to become great clinicians, researchers, educators and leaders in the field of OT.

Through the application process, we hope to get to know you more as an individual. We look for well-rounded applicants in terms of academics, exposure to the field of occupational therapy, and lived experiences.
