Professional Behavior and Development Passport

The Professional Behavior and Development Passport serves two purposes. One is to communicate about and allow reflection upon the student’s enactment of professional behaviors and conduct inherent in ethical and competent practice. The other purpose is to facilitate the habit of participation in professional goal-setting and in professional  development activities. Among these professional development activities are opportunities specific to learning more about issues of justice, equity, and inclusion that are relevant to practice, particularly in terms of client-centered care.

Master’s Comprehensive Self-Assessment (MCSA)

The Master’s Comprehensive Self-Assessment (MCSA) portfolio is intended to represent the scholarly work and professional growth of the student over the two years of the program and facilitate the student’s reflection on their learning and development. The MCSA serves as the final culminating document for completion of the MS in occupational therapy (replaces written and oral comprehensive exams).
