Programs

Study Abroad

The Department of Occupational Therapy at Tufts University is proud to sponsor two unique study abroad programs in occupational therapy.

Students enrolled in the entry-level and post-professional programs are given the opportunity to apply to our unique study abroad programs. The study abroad experience typically occurs during the spring semester for post-professional students, and during the spring semester of their second year for entry-level students. An info session will be offered in the first year to all students interested in study abroad. Here, you will learn about both programs and the application process. You do not need to apply for study abroad with your initial OT application.
