More About the Program

Occupational Therapy in Downers Grove

Our Faculty have more than 225 years of combined experience as occupational therapists and we continue our respective practices on a regular basis. We value clinical practice and will support you in fulfilling your dream to become an Occupational Therapist.

The curriculum is rigorous: you'll integrate concepts and principles in anatomy, physiology, neuroscience, and kinesiology with various therapeutic modalities.

The practice is full of hands-on experience in observation and interaction with patients at outstanding clinical sites, where you're under the careful supervision of licensed professionals.

When you complete our OT program, you're well prepared to help your patients improve everyday functioning at work and at home.
