Students today can look forward to dynamic careers working in multiple settings with people of all ages. And the employment picture for occupational therapists is bright!
Occupational therapy was listed by U.S. News & World Report as one of the jobs with the "best outlook in this recessionary economy and beyond, the highest rates of job satisfaction, and the highest pay." The aging of baby boomers will contribute to an increasing demand for the health care services occupational therapists provide.
