If you are searching for a career that is meaningful, health related, and provides a range of study opportunities with diverse work settings to choose from, occupational therapy might be a perfect fit for you. Occupational therapy is an exciting and growing profession that enables people to develop or retain independence when disability, illness, or other barriers create difficulty in living life to the fullest. Occupational therapy is set apart from other professions in health care because of its holistic nature. OT values the whole person and enables people of all ages and abilities to engage in the activities - the occupations - that are meaningful to their lives.
