Occupational Therapy Research
As part of a health science university we believe in advancing occupational therapy through research. Interwoven throughout the Masters of Occupational Therapy program are research courses which afford each student the opportunity to design and complete a research project. Our projects are diverse supporting our curricular threads:
- Transformative nature of occupation
- Evidence-based practice and research
- Health, lifestyle, and wellness
- Teaching modalities (e.g., inter-professional, service learning)
- Advocacy, justice, and civic responsibility (occupational justice & deprivation)
Students disseminate their research findings at our annual MOT research colloquium and many continue on to present their work at state and national conferences. Students work closely with our experienced research faculty advisors throughout the research process. Faculty primary areas of research interest are listed below:
