Temple’s Master of Occupational Therapy program realizes the hardships that the COVID-19 pandemic has created for our prospective students. The program strongly believes that in-person lecture and laboratories are ideal preparation for incoming students. However, the program understands this may not be feasible at this time, and safety must be at the forefront of the educational experience. The MOT program will allow for all lecture/laboratory courses to be taken in an online or in-person format. We do believe that an in-person Anatomy and Physiology laboratory experience best develops the prospective student for the MOT program coursework.
Please evaluate your courses to see if they satisfy the course description by reviewing this document. See the Program Prerequisite Information section below for more details.
