The aim of UTMB's post-professional OTD program is to address the current critical need for leaders of habilitation and rehabilitation teams who have 1) advanced management skills, 2) the capacity to develop innovative models of service delivery, 3) the ability to effectively mentor those just entering the workplace, 4) a grasp of research methodology sufficient to implement evidence-based practices, 5) the skills and knowledge to evaluate effectiveness and efficiency of systems of care, and 6) the leadership skills to implement change as needed. Graduates will be able to search, analyze and synthesize information for clinical evidence based decision making, serve effectively as members of inter-professional teams, create networks between institutions and communities, and address local priorities by maximizing systems of care.

They will also promote evidence based practice through adjunct or clinical lectures in entry-level programs and as clinical supervisors during fieldwork rotations.
