LMU-Knoxville OTD Program Mission and Goals

Consistent with the mission and purpose of Lincoln Memorial University, the mission of the Doctor of Occupational Therapy program at Lincoln Memorial University is to graduate critical thinking practitioners who lead the way in client-centered, evidence-based interventions through collaborative care to the individuals, communities, and populations of rural Appalachia and beyond.

In order to accomplish this mission, the LMU-Knoxville OTD Program is committed to achieving Programdesignated benchmarks for the following:


  1. The LMU OTD program will maintain an 80% on-time graduation rate.
  2. Graduates of the LMU OTD program will achieve an overall pass rate for the NBCOT certification exam of 80%.

Program outcomes, in relation to the above goals, will be published on the Program’s website as soon as data is available.
