Welcome to the Occupational Therapy Program


The Occupational Therapy (OT) Program in UW-Madison’s Department of Kinesiology is one of the most successful in the U.S. due to our outstanding faculty, staff, students and alumni; cutting-edge basic and applied research; and degree program quality.

In the past five years, OT faculty won more than $8 million in federal research grants from the National Institutes of Health.

We are honored that U.S. News & World Report ranked our Program ​14th of ​163 U.S. programs in its most recent ranking of graduate OT programs.

100 percent First-time Certification-test Pass-rate
For ​five consecutive years, all of our OT graduates passed on their first try at the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT).
