Occupational Therapy Schools - Occupational Therapist School

Occupational Therapy Schools The medical field is quickly becoming the most stable career path in the nation. If you're interested in careers with long-term employment potential, occupational therapy schools might be of interest. Occupational therapist training gives students the skills necessary to work in a variety of therapeutic environments. The end goal is to give patients the skills and tools necessary to lead long and productive lives despite their disability or illness.

Working for Independence

In addition to helping patients gain the skills to function in everyday environments, occupational therapist training also plays a role in the workplace. When working with a patient whose disability affects the ability to perform their current job, an occupational therapist can arrange employment, evaluate the work environment, plan work activities, and assess the client's progress.

Back to Occupational Therapy Schools

A bachelor's degree from any one of the many occupational therapy schools is all that is required to enter this field through 2006. Beginning in 2007 a master's degree or higher will be necessary to enter this field. Every US state and territory currently regulates occupational therapy, requiring applicants to graduate from an accredited occupational therapy training program and pass a standard certification examination. Upon completion of the requirements, applicants are given the title of "Occupational Therapist Registered."
