Idaho Occupational Therapy Degrees

Nestled in the valleys of the Rocky Mountains and the Wasatch Mountain Range lays Idaho, one of the largest producers of semi-precious stones. Idaho's opportunities for outdoor adventure and high manual labor participation make this State an ideal stomping ground for Occupational Therapists, who can use their rehabilitative services as a means for keeping Idaho's laborers in the workforce.


Idaho Education Requirements for Occupational Therapists

Idaho's occupational therapy courses are offered through traditional Master's degree programs that take about two to three years to complete. The programs offer classes in professional communication, human anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, neuroscience, applied therapeutic exercise, pharmacology, musculoskeletal systems management, geriatrics, and fieldwork experience. Students who follow these programs may be required to take oral and comprehensive examinations while they complete their degree.

When students finish their degree program, gain certification through NBCOT, they must participate in a continuing education and professional development program. This rule does not  apply to Occupational Therapists who are obtaining their licenses for the first time; it only applies to those who have renewed their licenses more than once.

Idaho's continuing education program is divided into continuing education units and professional development units. Certificants must obtain two continuing education units and 10 professional development units before their license expires. They can obtain these credits through the American Occupation Therapy Association, the Idaho Occupational Therapy Association, or an approved institution that contributes to developing an Occupational Therapist's professional skills, knowledge, and ability.
