OTH 701: Capstone Project Planning

Credits 3

OTD students will use scholarly trends in Occupational Therapy to design the culminating experience of the entry-level doctorate in occupational therapy (OTD). This course moves from personal and professional transformation toward the transformation of practice. During this experience, students will reason beyond the competencies of entry-level therapists by applying clinical practice, research, administration, leadership, program and policy development, advocacy, education, and/or theory development to plan and initiate the Doctoral Capstone (DC). This course will engage the student to seek and connect with the fieldwork site and a mentor for this professional experience in combination with developing their personal learning objectives. OTD students only. Course content delivered as lecture, reduced seat time or online.
