Program in Occupational Therapy ranked as the number one OT program in nation

U.S. News & World Report has ranked the Program in Occupational Therapy number one in the nation among graduate programs in occupational therapy. The ranking is based solely on the results of peer assessment surveys sent to deans, other administrators and/or accredited degree programs or schools in the discipline.

“This ranking is a testament to the dedicated efforts of our faculty, clinicians and staff. Every day we have the opportunity to shape the future of our profession and improve the performance and participation of people with chronic, developmental or disabling conditions by providing the highest quality of education to our students,” said Carolyn M. Baum, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, Elias Michael Executive Director of the Program in Occupational Therapy and professor of occupational therapy, of neurology and of social work. “We are thankful to our colleagues for recognizing us in the peer review process and for the vote of confidence they have given our Program. We are very fortunate to be in a university that has challenged us to develop and maintain a contemporary curriculum, build a research program and integrate the community into our learning experiences.”
