Welcome to OT Club

Welcome to the Occupational Therapy Club at Penn State’s Main Campus! This club is designated to guide and mentor future OT’s through the graduate school application process. We correspond with admissions directors to organize informative Skype sessions, participate in volunteer activities, notify students of relevant on-campus affairs and events, and offer Q & A sessions on all of your application and curriculum concerns. Occupational Therapy Club is the best on-campus resource for aspiring OT’s. Please visit our Executive Members tab and contact a member to be added to the listserv, and stay tuned for our next meeting!

Why OT?

Occupational therapists assist individuals in regaining or gaining function in various skills related to activities of daily living (ADL’s). These are activities individuals typically do everyday with little to no assistance. One of the great things about occupational therapy is the diversity within the field. Therapists can work in hospitals, schools, prisons, skilled nursing facilities, mental health facilities, home care, and more. You can narrow your interests within the field, receiving specialty certification in areas such as hand therapy or mental health. Occupational therapists also work across the lifespan. They have the ability to work with infants, children, adolescents, adults, and older adults. Level I and Level II fieldwork placements help you identify your population and setting of interest throughout your graduate school program.
