Program Overview

Students of the Occupational Therapy program at Temple University learn how to evaluate clients functional needs, and develop and implement solutions for clients to gain independence. This entry-level professional program prepares graduates to take the national board certification (NBCOT) examination, which allows you to become a registered occupational therapist.
