Department of Occupational Therapy
The OT educational curriculum experiences include theory, practice, assessments and interventions, hands-on skills, documentation, management and supervision courses, research projects, leadership development, and fieldwork experiences.
All OT students participate in scholarship activities and analyze evidence-based occupational outcomes in order to positively impact the health of people we serve. Research and scholarship experiences translate evidence-based outcomes to improve population health, community benefits, and the OT profession.
Educational experiences are designed to provide patient- and family-centered care through excellence in all service delivery, advocacy, and leadership roles. The GRU Department of Occupational Therapy has a commitment to quality and ethical care in order to meet the health care needs of a widely dispersed and diverse population.
