Welcome to our occupational therapy program website. Our faculty are highly dedicated
educators committed to quality teaching, research, clinical practice, and the profession
of occupational therapy. As clinicians with years of experience in a variety of settings,
we plan relevant learning experiences to prepare students to become competent practitioners.
The curriculum is designed to involve the learner as an active participant in the
essential knowledge, skills, behaviors and attitudes necessary for entry-level occupational
therapy practice. The faculty take pride in being accessible to our students in order
to assist them in their learning. The concept of the seamless classroom whereby students
continue their learning outside the walls of the classroom is a reality in our program.
To promote the students’ professional development, the students have participated
in assessing clients in the community, designing community enhancement projects, and
collaborating with faculty, area clinicians, and local agencies to synthesize academic
and clinical learning. Students have the opportunity to be involved with the Student
Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) to further enhance professional leadership
skills and community service experiences.
