OTA Mission & Curriculum

OTA's Mission

The statement of the mission of the occupational therapy assistant program must be consistent with and supportive of the mission of the sponsoring institution. The program's mission statement should explain the unique nature of the program and how it helps fulfill or advance the mission of the sponsoring institution, including religious missions.

OTA's Curriculum Design

Five common threads have been identified as essential skills that will contribute to each student’s success while in program, fieldwork and the workforce. In each course, the student will find that faculty incorporates the identified common threads.  Each instructor is responsible for weaving the identified common threads into their curriculum and providing feedback during the Student Advising Period.
