"I chose Whitworth because I wanted to be part of something new. I felt extremely welcomed during the interview process and believed that what was being built in terms of the OT program really allowed me to pursue a meaningful career path."

Cohort Model

You'll take courses and complete the Doctor of Occupational Therapy program with a group of approximately 30 other students. Because your cohort remains together throughout the program, you'll have the opportunity to develop a strong sense of community, participate in collaborative learning, study for exams with peers and practice treatment on each other. Your knowledge base and clinical skills will increase with each successive term as you progress through courses and integrated clinical experiences together.
