I am very pleased to welcome you to the Department of Occupational Therapy at Augusta University. Whether you are here as a prospective student, current student, alumnus or for another reason, I hope you find the information you are seeking. If not, please reach out to us.
Augusta University’s Occupational Therapy Program is the oldest OT program in Georgia, having been established in 1971 at the Medical College of Georgia. For nearly 50 years we have been educating occupational therapy professionals who have gone on to serve with distinction in Georgia and beyond. You can find our alumni in clinics, academic programs and leadership positions across the country.
As a faculty, we view each student as a future colleague. As a result, we focus on student success in all areas of their curricular experiences and strongly encourage extracurricular engagement while here with us at Augusta University. Our program is recognized as having a rigorous curriculum that prepares graduates to excel in their career. We have a Departmental culture that is rooted in service, to our clients and their families, to our community and to our profession. Our students have opportunities within the curriculum, through student organizations and on their own to strengthen classroom learning through service learning and volunteerism within our Augusta area community and beyond. Alumni and community members are able to partner with us to develop projects and meet needs through co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
Our faculty is comprised of outstanding clinicians and educators who are recognized within the region and nationally for their work as clinical experts, researchers, leaders and volunteers. We are committed to educating our students for excellence in practice, research, leadership and service today and in the future.
I encourage you to spend some time on our webpage learning about our program, our curriculum, our outcomes (including our 98% retention rate and 100% success on the NBCOT Certification Exam), and our faculty. If you would like to learn more about our program, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or attend one of our Open House events.
