Required OT-Related Activities for Application to the OTA Program

Students must complete each of the following activities. Documentation of each activity and verification signatures and information must be completed and must follow the format described below.

NOTE: The OTA Program strongly recommends that the observation hours and interview be performed outside of the Monroe/West Monroe area whenever possible so that the limited number of local practitioners will not be overwhelmed with requests. For this reason, students who live in out-of-town/state areas should  plan to do their observations in those areas during University breaks and holidays.
