About this course

The overall goal of the Fox College Occupational Therapy Assistant Program is to provide entry-level occupational therapy assistants with the theoretical and clinical knowledge necessary to excel in today’s dynamic healthcare environment. Coursework will educate the student in the importance of individual occupation as it relates to independence, health, safety, and culture across a lifespan and in the variety of settings possible for the practice of occupational therapy (OT).

Occupational Therapy Assistant students must complete a health physical and drug screening and submit an immunization history and proof of health insurance prior to beginning their fieldwork affiliations and must complete a criminal background check prior to beginning OT-170 Physical Rehabilitation Level I Fieldwork.
