VCU’s Online Post-Professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) program combines distance and on-site education methods. The distance format is a part of all courses mediated through the Blackboard System. Compact on-campus components have been integrated into many courses to enable both didactic content and cohort formation. These on-campus sessions will occur approximately twice a year (August and January) for 2-3 days. Each session allows students to complete one semester of classes and begin the next semester in face to face format which is then accompanied by on-line sessions throughout the remainder each semester.
