OT 101

Introduction to Allied Health Professions

This course is an advising section for students interested in exploring allied health professions, such as nursing, occupation therapy, and physical therapy, in addition to the liberal arts and sciences. The three objectives of the course are 1) to define the roles and functions of occupational therapists, physical therapists, and other allied health professionals in a variety of settings; 2) to explore current issues in U.S. health care delivery; and 3) to explore students' alternative academic interests to ensure that their courses of study will be chosen in a well-informed and considered way. NOTE: This course is not required for the OT program, nor will it meet any requirements for that degree.
