School of Occupational Therapy
What is OT?
Occupational therapy is skilled treatment that helps individuals achieve independence in all facets of their lives. It gives people the "skills for the job of living" necessary for independent and satisfying lives. Occupational therapy practitioners are health care professionals whose education includes the study of human growth and development with specific emphasis on the social, emotional, and physiological effects of illness and injury.
The School of Occupational Therapy in concert with the mission of the college and university seeks to develop skilled and caring clinicians who respond adaptively to situations, meticulously investigate their world and knowledge base, and provide ethical and unbiased services. The school serves as a resource for Occupational Therapy practitioners and advocates for the value of occupation to the community.
