AOTA Board Position Statement on Doctoral-Level Single Point of Entry for Occupational Therapists
In April of this year, AOTA’s Board of Directors issued a position statement to articulate their view that future occupational therapists will need to be doctorally prepared for entry-level practice by 2025. Click here for an article that provides background on the decision and the process moving forward.
In addition to discussion meetings, the Board encourages members to share their views in a new OT Connections forum. They have also started a list of FAQs, which will be added to as more questions arise.
