Welcome to the Occupational Therapy Program at Stony Brook University and Stony Brook at Southampton

Welcome to Stony Brook University’s Department of Occupational Therapy.  The School of Health Technology and Management’s Occupational Therapy Program is a graduate 3-year program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA, http://www.acoteonline.org).  Our graduates will receive a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy upon graduation.  Graduates will sit for the national certification exam for occupational therapists administered by the National Board of Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT, http://www.nbcot.org).

We are a nationally ranked OT program that makes every effort in providing a dynamic learning experience for our student cohorts.  Our program encourages interdisciplinary and professional collaborative research, relationships with strong community programs, and opportunities to develop robust scholarly activities both within the program and the healthcare community.

Our program has two campus sites, Stony Brook and Stony Brook at Southampton.  Both campuses provide the student-centered learning experiences and often join cohorts to collaborate in ongoing community projects.  Each year we admit 60 students within our program with 30 students per campus student cohort.   Our students receive faculty mentorship throughout their academic experience and often times continue that mentorship post-graduation.

Our diverse faculty bring their expertise and strengths to the classroom and encourage our students to participate with them in scholarship and research as a part of their extensive learning experiences.  Please browse our website and look at the inspiring and groundbreaking activities of our faculty and student body.

Please consider visiting us at one of our monthly information sessions or make an appointment to meet with a member of our faculty or our administrative assistant.
