Required prerequisites include:
*Prerequisite coursework is available through Le Moyne College. Neuroscience and Medical Terminology are offered regularly as 100% online courses through the OT Department. Please contact GradAdmission@lemoyne.edu for more information.
Applicants should demonstrate they have completed (or are in progress to complete) a minimum of 30 clinical observation hours under the supervision of a licensed OT. Ideally, these hours will be in multiple settings with different clients to show a diverse set of experiences.
*The admission committee is aware that the global pandemic has made securing observation hours very difficult for some applicants. Students are encouraged to apply asap, even if they are working to finish their required 30 hours of observation, as our committee will review those considerations case by case during the admission process.*
In addition, Quinnipiac University (author Cheryl B. Lucas, EdD, OTR/L) has recently released an online shadowing experience that will count for our observation hour requirement. Students can take advantage of this free learning module online here (password: LucasQU).
The module is estimated to provide you with an additional 10 hours of observation experience.
OTCAS will prompt you to report your observation hours in the application. There is no supplemental documentation required.
The MSOT program requires students to have access to personal technology such as a laptop computer, tablet, or PC throughout the duration of the program as well as a working webcam during the online courses. Students should reference our Campus Technology Website for detailed suggestions before purchase.
Technology Competencies Success in both the online and in person portions of the program requires students to have the ability to navigate the college’s learning management system (Canvas), manage electronic communications (email), utilize research and information databases, and install software.
Online courses will consist of a combination of scheduled synchronous and asynchronous learning activities; synchronous sessions will require use of the Zoom platform. In person courses will maximize the use of technology with no seat time reduction, using the Canvas learning management system for administration, communication, assessment and content delivery to both supplement and enhance the face to face experience.
Prior to starting coursework, all students will be required to complete an online orientation course through Canvas that will prepare them to meet the technology competency requirements of the online portions of the program. Additionally, students will have ongoing access to the IT service desk to assist with managing questions or concerns related to required technologies while in the program.
