A key component of our educational program is the opportunity to learn and grow under the guidance of a mentor.
Each student in the Program is matched to a mentor for academic advising and professional development; OTD students also complete the OTD Mentored Scholarship course series under the direction of their mentor. MSOT students who intend to pursue a PhD may enroll in the elective MSOT to PhD Mentored Scholarship course series to prepare for entry into a PhD program.
The OTD Mentored Scholarship sequence of courses begins in the summer semester of the first year in the Program. The three-course sequence is a self-directed learning experience in which students complete a scholarly project under the mentor’s guidance.

We are excited that you are considering applying to the Program in Occupational Therapy at Washington University. Please join us for a Zoom Information Session for either our entry-level MSOT or OTD degrees or our online post-professional OTD. Current faculty members will discuss the Program and answer any question you may have. We are offering these sessions on the following days and times. The content is the same for each one, so you only need to sign up for one.
