Rhode Island Occupational Therapy Degrees

There are several different Occupational Therapy programs in Rhode Island, both online and on campus.  It is important to make certain that both ACOTE and American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) accredit the selected program.

Some programs offer an Associates in Science in Occupational Therapy Assistant Technology that can be completed in 18 months.  In addition to course work, students will be part of a rehabilitation team, collect data for patient evaluations, implement treatment plans, and use technology.

There are several Rhode Island occupational therapy courses offered by online and campus based schools that lead to a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy degree.  Phase I of these programs typically offer classroom training (on campus or online) and Level I fieldwork, which is done off campus. Students are expected to learn a variety of assessment techniques to identify clients’ problem areas and be able to take the lead in using personal information, as well as theoretical and scientific evidence, to develop a plan for the client.  They also will act as part of rehabilitation team, participate in interdisciplinary meetings, and assure that OT intervention meets legal, ethical and fiscal requirements.

Second phase usually focuses on Level II fieldwork including two full-time 12-week fieldwork experiences.  This Level II fieldwork gives the students the opportunity to apply classroom training to real life experiences. 
One OT program is offered as a bridge between COTA level and OTR level careers.   This program has a weekend format with students attending classes five weekends each 10-week quarter.  An MS of OT degree can be earned in 10 quarters. After graduation, students will be eligible to sit for the NBCOT exam for OT.
