What do you think is special about the Post-Professional OTD program here at the MGH Institute?
The support system throughout the whole program and after you graduate is by far the best aspect of this program. The community supports you professionally, personally and academically. You truly become a family.

After I graduate, I plan to continue working as a school-based therapist. I would like to explore other entrepreneurial opportunities in the future or maybe even teach a course of two.
