To qualify for OTR jobs, you will need at least a master’s degree in occupational therapy from an accredited program. A master’s degree will take 2 years in addition to a 4-year bachelor’s degree, although some schools offer dual degree programs in which students may earn a bachelor’s and master’s degree in 5 years.
As an OTR, you will observe and assess patients in order to develop a treatment plan that addresses their functional issues. You may employ a variety of treatment methods, including exercise to help strengthen muscles, teaching patients energy conservation techniques, training patients to use adaptive equipment and more.
