Dominican University of California Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a health and rehabilitation profession dedicated to enabling people of all ages and abilities to engage in the “occupations” of daily life activities, work, play, school, and independent living. Occupation refers to everything people do during the course of everyday life—the activities in which they engage that make life meaningful.

Occupational therapists are trained to evaluate and design therapeutic interventions that enable people to participate in personal and community activities of their choice. These "occupations" may be related to developmental, work, leisure, or independent living needs. Occupational therapists are healers and teachers who enable people to achieve independence and live sustainable lives in healthy communities.

"I'm getting settled into my new job at Community Regional Medical Center here in Fresno, CA. Every single day I wake up I love my job and my profession. I have met more inspirational individuals and families than I had ever imagined possible. Sometimes I think each patient changes my life more than I am able to impact theirs. - Shaina Talbot

Demand for Occupational Therapy professionals is projected to rise by more than 27 percent between 2004and 2014, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The average student has multiple job offers upon graduation.
