Occupational therapists are confronted with administrative and supervisory responsibilities and the need for increased specialization. Areas of practice such as health and wellness consulting, technology and assistive device development, and community-based health services are emerging practice areas.
To help occupational therapists meet these demands, Tufts Department of Occupational Therapy, in conjunction with the Office of Graduate Studies, offers a part-time program: Certificate of Advanced Professional Study.
This certificate is especially designed for occupational therapists who are interested in expanding their careers, fieldwork, educators, administrators, clinical specialists, and supervisors as well as seasoned professionals eager to strengthen their experience.
Each certificate program is open to individuals with a bachelor's, master's, or doctoral degree in occupational therapy interested in expanding their careers or eager to strengthen their expertise.
