The Department of Occupational Therapy was created when the Tufts-affiliated Boston School of Occupational Therapy merged with the university. In 1962, the department moved into the School of Medicine's Boston campus. Efforts were made to integrate this formerly all-women's school into the Tufts community and align its liberal arts component with the program followed by most Tufts undergraduates. In 1986, these efforts were abandoned and its bachelor degrees were phased out in favor of graduate degrees, which had been introduced in 1978. The department moved to quarters in Somerville, and then to the Medford campus, and added a doctoral program.
