OT PROFESSION NOW REQUIRES A MASTERS

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo


The Occupations of Physical and Occupational Therapy are in educational transition.  About ten years ago, the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education began the transition for Physical Therapists.  CAPTE currently requires a Master's Degree for entry into the profession.  The standard will rise to a Doctorate Physical Therapy on January 1, 2016.


Occupational Therapy is going through a similar transition.  All new Occupational Therapist Eligibility Determination applicants who do not hold a master's degree in occupational therapy must have an OTED application withpayment to NBCOT postmarked by January 1, 2013.  Effective January 2, 2013, only applicants with a master's degree in occupational therapy will be able to apply to the OTED review process and, if deemed eligible, take the NBCOT certification exam.
