First Person Account: In Your Shoes

Dr. Dana Howell, Ph.D., OTD, OTR/L

New EKU Doctorate Program in Occupational Therapy Offered Online

Eastern Kentucky University will launch a doctoral degree program in occupational therapy in Spring 2013. Those who apply by December 15 can begin classes in mid-January.

The program is offered online for the convenience of working professionals, so it will reach not only practicing occupational therapists in rural Kentucky, but potentially those worldwide.
