Leading the Occupational Therapy profession since 1946

Why Our OT Program

The University of Minnesota’s Occupational Therapy program has led the OT profession nationally and internationally since it was first accredited in 1946.

Our lengthy history delivering curriculum in a hybrid learning format – both in-class and online – has contributed to outstanding academic outcomes, and a seamless transition to off-site learning during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The OT program’s graduation rate is close to 100 percent, and employers in a variety of settings are actively seeking to hire our graduates to improve the life skills of the people they serve.
