High school students invited to overnight occupational therapy camp

Bookmark and Share
Expecting a substantial upsurge in demand for rehabilitative therapists in the coming years, education officials are introducing occupational therapy to high school-age students who have expressed an interest in the career path.

Misericordia University in Dallas, Pennsylvania, is offering rising high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to attend a residential Occupational Therapy Career Exploration Camp in June to learn about the OT profession, meet faculty members and tour clinical sites in the region.

Attendees are exposed to the wide range of options in the occupational therapy field, including inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services, hospital treatments and pediatric services.

In previous years, exit surveys have revealed that the high school students left the camp with a greater understanding of the specialized field and enough information to begin making decisions about their future career path.

"The OT camp made me 100 percent sure that this is what I want my career to be in," one attendee of the 2009 camp wrote. "Your summer program provided an excellent introduction to both your campus and your occupational therapy program."

Recruitment of students may be essential to fill positions in a field that the Bureau of Labor Statistics expects to expand by 26 percent through 2018.ADNFCR-2840-ID-19664245-ADNFCR
