The mission of the Occupational Therapy program from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center is to provide students with a strong foundation in clinical reasoning, knowledge, and skills to become competent occupational therapists who improve the health of individuals and communities.


Course Description

Our faculty are highly dedicated educators who are committed to quality teaching, research, clinical practice, and the profession of occupational therapy. As clinicians with years of experience in a variety of settings, we plan relevant learning experiences to prepare students to become competent practitioners. The curriculum of the Occupational Therapy program from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center is designed to involve the learner as an active participant in the essential knowledge, skills, behaviors and attitudes necessary for entry-level occupational therapy practice. The faculty take pride in being accessible to our students in order to assist them in their learning. The concept of the seamless classroom whereby students continue their learning outside the walls of the classroom is a reality in our program. mot_badge

To promote the students’ professional development, our students practice in assessing clients in the community, designing community enhancement projects, and collaborate with faculty, area clinicians, and local agencies to synthesize academic and clinical learning.  Students have the opportunity to be involved with the Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) to further enhance professional leadership skills and community service experiences.
