Program Desc: The mission of Boston University's post-professional Master of Science for Occupational Therapists program is to increase practitioners' ability to use current theory, research, and knowledge of health and social service systems to guide clinical practice, and thus to prepare them to develop innovative and effective intervention and service programs. In this program, students will examine current practice in relation to the guidelines of the existing Occupational Therapy Practice Framework for occupation-focused, client-centered, and evidence-based occupational therapy; make effective use of scientific evidence to guide clinical reasoning; apply management skills to design, market, and evaluate the quality of clinical services; plan and conduct educational programming for clients and their caregivers, peers, students, policy-related bodies (local, state, and federal), and the general public. Students will build on the knowledge and skills acquired in their BS-level professional program and during clinical practice, in order to develop more advanced critical thinking and problem-solving skills to support their role as effective practitioners. The program consists of 32 credits (11 courses), which can be completed in 22 months (start times are Spring, Summer and Fall). Applicants will need 2 professional references, 2 essays and formal transcript. Several practicum courses are designed to support immediate application of didactic courses to practice contexts; therefore, students must be employed at least part-time in a health, rehabilitation, or human services field at the time of matriculation.
