The vision of the UTHSC Department of Occupational Therapy is to be a premiere occupational therapy program producing leaders who demonstrate exceptional multicultural, client-centered and evidence-based practice with the highest ethical standards.
The primary mission of the Department of Occupational Therapy at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center is to guide students in making connections between academic knowledge, community engagement, and clinical experiences, with the goal of graduating outstanding practitioners who are committed to leadership and evidence-based practice.
The UTHSC Occupational Therapy Program was initially accredited as a Bachelor of Science Program and graduated its first class in 1990. The program transitioned to a Master’s Degree in 2007. Graduates are prepared for entry-level positions as occupational therapists.
