The ECU Occupational Therapy Program

The Occupational Therapy Program is located on the west campus, located near the Brody School of Medicine and Vidant Medical Center. The Program is in the College of Allied Health Sciences that shares a new state-of-the art building with the College of Nursing and Laupus Health Sciences Library. We encourage all individuals who are considering applying to the program to visit our Occupational Therapy Department.

Informational sessions including tours of the department are held at various time throughout the year on Fridays. To register, please send an email to and include your name, the date of the session (see below) you would like to attend, and the number of people attending. If you are unable to attend one of the informational sessions or Open House listed below, you may schedule an individual appointment.

Information Sessions

We also encourage you to explore our website thoroughly to determine if the program's educational objectives, structured curriculum, and faculty members' research agendas will be a good match for your educational needs and occupational goals.
