Degree Granted: Master of Occupational Therapy (M.O.T.)

The Occupational Therapy Department offers a five-year entry level Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) Degree. Occupational Therapy as a profession is based on the belief that occupation, including its interpersonal and environmental components, may be used to prevent and mediate dysfunction and elicit maximum adaptation. For information regarding the program, the website is: http://www.ot.und.edu/index.html.

The Occupational Therapy Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE). For information regarding accreditation, contact ACOTE at (301) 652-2682, or 4720 Montgomery Lane, PO Box 31220, Bethesda, MD, 20824-1220. All basic professional programs must comply with the Standards for an Accredited Educational Program for the Occupational Therapist, 2006. Graduates of the program will be able to sit for the national entry-level certification examination for the occupational therapist administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy, Inc. (NBCOT, 800 South Frederick Avenue, Suite 200, Gaithersburg, MD 20877-4150; phone 301-990-7979. After successful completion of this examination the graduate will be an Occupational Therapist Registered (OTR). Most states require licensure in order to practice; state licenses may be based on the results of the NBCOT certification examination.

A satellite professional level MOT program, also accredited by ACOTE, is available at Casper College, Casper, WY. Tuition and other information regarding the program are available by contacting the Occupational Therapy Department at Casper College, Casper, WY, telephone 307-268-2613.

Mission Statement

The Department of Occupational Therapy shares the mission of the University of North Dakota and the School of Medicine and Health Sciences to serve the public through:

  1. teaching and preparation of highly skilled entry-level occupational therapists;
  2. scholarly and creative activity; and
  3. service.

The mission is accomplished through integration of scholarly inquiry and application of occupation in teaching/learning and OT practice contexts. Promotion of health and wellness of the public through engagement in meaningful and valued occupations and commitment to best practices within the profession of OT are expected outcomes. Best practices in the profession will reflect the exemplars of self-reflection, client-centeredness, and occupation-centered practice driven by research evidence. The skills for lifelong learning and ethical and effective leadership will be promoted to enhance the quality of life of all people with whom we engage.

Program Goals

Goal 1: Students will be able to analyze and apply the occupation-based theories, models of practice and frames of reference used to guide occupational therapy evaluation and intervention.

Goal 2: Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the use of screening and evaluation tools used to determine the need for occupational therapy intervention.

Goal 3: Students will be able to formulate and implement the therapeutic intervention plan to facilitate occupational performance.

Goal 4: Students will be able to apply principles of management and systems in the provision of occupational therapy services to individuals and organizations.

Goal 5: Students will organize, collect, analyze and evaluate clinical data, research evidence, professional literature, and measures of outcome in order to make informed, evidence-based decisions in occupational therapy practice, including improving practice outcomes.

Goal 6: Students will demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the AOTA Code of Ethics, Core Values and Attitudes of Occupational Therapy, and AOTA-Standards of Practice as guides for professional interactions in academic and practice settings.

Goal 7: Students will demonstrate effective communication skills, both oral and written, across multiple contexts important to the practice of occupational therapy.
