Happy 10th Birthday to us!

2019 marks a special year for the Department of Occupational Therapy, as we celebrate 10 years since admitting our first class of Occupational Therapy students in 2009. We have since graduated more than 100 students, have achieved initial accreditation and reaccreditation from ACOTE, have developed strong community partnerships to serve the learning needs of our students, and have implemented an international and interprofessional service learning program. Our faculty, collectively, has presented numerous workshops, lectures, and posters at local, regional, national, and international conferences, has published articles and supported students to present their scholarly work.

Our newest adventure began in July of 2019, when a merger between Jefferson College of Health Sciences (JCHS) and Radford University created the first Occupational Therapy department in the state of Virginia that offers all three degree options (OTA, MOT, post-professional OTD). 

We are excited about where we have been and equally excited about our future!
