Internationally renowned for having established the first graduate program in occupational therapy and the first Ph.D. program in occupational science, the division now offers multiple degree programs and boasts one of the largest NIH research portfolios of all occupational therapy educational programs nationwide. With an extensive clinical arm, it also is translating research findings into evidence-based best practices. The division makes a unique contribution to the undergraduate learning experience as well through its minor program in occupational science.
