VERMILLION, S.D. – The University of South Dakota’s online doctor of occupational therapy program has been recognized as the nation’s second most affordable by the SR Education Group.
“The online program is designed for practitioners who wish to develop advanced skills in leadership, program development, clinical and academic teaching, and policy development,” said Barbara Brockevelt, chair of the occupational therapy department.
The online occupational therapy doctorate degree at USD is a 24 credit, four-semester program for licensed occupational therapists who hold a master’s degree in occupational therapy.
“This set of rankings represents online schools across the nation that are making an effort to provide economical options for students seeking a variety of health care degrees,” said the SR Education Group.
The online occupational therapy doctorate program was started in 2015, concurrent with the offering of a face-to-face occupational therapy doctorate program at USD.
