Portfolio for Work Experience

The Occupational Therapy Program is committed to transformative education of adult learners through non-traditional lifelong learning experiences. We recognize the value of life and professional experiences and offer certified occupational therapy clinicians the opportunity to submit a reflective portfolio evidencing validation of their acquired knowledge and skills in the program’s educational outcomes. The portfolio must be submitted at the time of admission and may be focused on one or more of the following areas: leadership, research or specialized/ advanced practice. Students may earn up to 6 credits towards their doctorate degree in occupational therapy based on the portfolio review. A Portfolio review fee applies.
