Choosing the Right Occupational Therapy School for You
Since occupational therapy as a career has become more popular these
days, there has also been a rise in the demand for more occupational
therapy schools. It is said that up to 2018, there would be a continuous
increase in the demand for such schools. That is why more people have
also continued to study the OT since there is a steady need for
occupational therapists. However, it is a must that you know about the
different factors that you have to consider when it comes to choosing the
right occupational therapy school.
First and foremost you have to keep in mind that the school you are
looking for should be fully accredited. Before you become qualified for
a national certification exam, you would have to complete Accreditation
Council for Occupational Therapy Education program (ACOTE).
Schools that don’t have this kind of accreditation isn’t at all considered
reputable in the field.
It is also a good idea to check if the occupational therapy school
Miami you choose has a bachelor’s and master’s program or a
standalone master’s program.
You can choose the program based on your career goals. Hence it is
necessary for you to decide well on the kind of degree you would like to
have so that you can narrow down your choices for schools when it
comes to occupational therapy degree programs.
It is also necessary for you to choose the location of the OT school you
have in mind. This is so because there are no OT degrees now that can
be offered fully through online means.
