The Indiana University School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Department of Occupational Therapy graduate program is ranked among the top occupational therapy (OT) programs in the nation, according to the latest rankings by U. S. News & World Report.
The program was ranked 21st out of 156 OT programs in the country according to the U. S. News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools rankings released on March 13, 2012.
The program has been graduating professional occupational therapists for 55 years. The program has seen its ranking rise from 39th in 2007 to 21st in the graduate program rankings.
“The program’s high ranking in such a competitive field of OT programs, is an outcome of the hard work everyone associated with the program including students, staff and faculty has contributed.” Dr. Thomas Fisher, Professor and Chair noted.
“The IU OT program is an example of how a program with an emphasis on student centeredness, evidence-based practice and theoretical understanding of occupational therapy philosophy and principles can succeed.” Having an excellent accreditation visit in the fall and now to have our peers rank us in the top tier of OT programs is truly an accomplishment. Leading such a department is a privilege.” Dr. Fisher shared with the department.
