An occupational therapist is a skilled licensed/certified health care worker who implements treatment plans, assesses patients’ needs, determines therapeutic goals, plans treatment activities, communicates with patients and health care providers, and documents patient progress. Occupational therapists work with people of all ages who need specialized assistance to lead independent, productive, and satisfying lives due to physical, developmental, social, or emotional problems. Occupational therapists help patients to return to their own self-care, work, and play/leisure activities in addition to increasing independence, enhance development, and/or prevent disability. They may work in a wide variety of settings including hospitals, rehabilitation centers, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, school systems, psychiatric hospitals and private practice outpatient clinics. OT is a challenging and fascinating job combining creativity and problem solving with the ability to make practical, meaningful changes in a person’s life. As an OT you will use your knowledge, critical thinking, and hands-on skills to help others.
