Course Description

We prepare the students to become entry-level generalists in occupational therapy by integrating multiple practice courses with small group experiential labs in pediatrics, psychosocial rehabilitation, physical rehabilitation, hand therapy, geriatrics, and community-based practice throughout the curriculum. Clinical fieldwork courses immediately follow the related practice courses, which provide a springboard for post-graduation opportunities. We have an extended database of established fieldwork contracts and work closely with students to choose a placement that best suits their needs. We are approved by World Federation of Occupational Therapists(WFOT) in 2017. It is required 120 credits to graduate with a diploma(associate degree) from the ChungBuk Health & Science University. The required credits in the OT curriculum are total 108; thus 12 credits must be earned through general education and elective courses.
