Tour Our Facility
Moravian College opened the Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center, located at 1441 Schoenersville Road, in 2016. The 43,000+ square-foot building is the home of the College’s Master of Science in Athletic Training program, Doctor of Athletic Training (DAT), Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology, and future Doctor of Physical Therapy programs —positioning Moravian College as the only college in the country to house these five programs under one roof. 10,000 square feet of the building is designated for St. Luke’s University Health Network, where their top-notch care providers are already rehabilitating area athletes and community members with cutting-edge equipment, including extracorporeal shockwave therapy, blood flow restriction, class IV LASER, and an anti-gravity treadmill. The building is a physical embodiment of experiential learning and interprofessional education. The facility includes active classrooms, multiple specialty labs, student collaboration areas, a distance- learning classroom and more than 20 faculty offices.

Lehigh Valley's First Virtual Cadaver Lab
The entry-level occupational therapy master’s degree program has applied for accreditation and has been granted Candidacy Status by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), located at 6116 Executive Boulevard, Suite 200, North Bethesda, MD 20852-4929. ACOTE’s telephone number c/o AOTA is (301) 652-AOTA and its Web address is www.acoteonline.org. The program must have a preaccreditation review, complete an on-site evaluation, and be granted Accreditation Status before its graduates will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination for the occupational therapist administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). After successful completion of this exam, the individual will be an Occupational Therapist, Registered (OTR). In addition, all states require licensure in order to practice; however, state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination. Note that a felony conviction may affect a graduate’s ability to sit for the NBCOT certification examination or attain state licensure. Students must complete Level II fieldwork within 24 months following completion of the didactic portion of the program.
Graduation from a physical therapist education program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) is necessary for eligibility to sit for the licensure examination, which is required in all states.

Moravian College is seeking accreditation of a new physical therapist education program from CAPTE. The program is planning to submit an Application for Candidacy, which is the formal application required in the pre-accreditation stage, on December 1, 2020. Submission of this document does not assure that the program will be granted Candidate for Accreditation status. Achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status is required prior to implementation of the professional phase of the program; therefore, no students may be enrolled in the professional courses until Candidate for Accreditation status has been achieved. Further, though achievement of Candidate for Accreditation signifies satisfactory progress toward accreditation, it does not assure that the program will be granted accreditation.
