HUNTINGTON, Ind. (WFFT) — Huntington University’s Doctoral Program in Occupational Therapy has increased its enrollment for the fall 2019 semester.

A total of 136 students are enrolled as of this semester, which is an increase of 17 students from 2018.

The Doctoral Program in Occupational Therapy at Huntington University is an entry-level doctoral program that prepares students to be healthcare providers in occupational therapy and interprofessional settings with skills beyond a generalist level for an array of specialty settings.

The University says the increased enrollment in the doctoral program benefits not only the university but the greater Fort Wayne area as well.

“The economic development projections that accompany the University’s enrollment growth signal an influx of local and regional new dollars into our communities,” said Dr. Sherilyn Emberton, president of Huntington University. “In turn, this supports the region’s efforts to attract and retain talent, raise the per capita income, and provide postsecondary credentialing to 60% of our population.”

Huntington University is one of the first 11 fully accredited doctoral occupational therapy programs in the nation.
