High school students get lesson in occupational therapy at summer camp

Bookmark and Share
Individuals who are looking for occupational therapy jobs may not realize all of the schooling and training that goes into the position.

Misericordia University recently held an academic camp for high school students to learn about the practice of occupational therapy, according to the school's website. Approximately 26 students participated in a three-day, two-night program that allowed them to learn about the profession, meet the school's faculty and staff, and tour regional occupational therapy facilities.

Some students who participated in the Misericordia University Occupational Therapy Summer Career Exploration Camp told the news provider that not only was the camp a beneficial experience, but also taught them more about the profession, setting career goals.

"I not only had fun, but I learned so much! I can't wait to start learning how to be an OT!" Layne Mertz of Kutztown, Pennsylvania, wrote in her exit survey, according to the school. "The camp was run very smoothly and everyone was very helpful."

For those who are looking to attain an occupational therapy job, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that a master's degree or higher is required for the profession.ADNFCR-2840-ID-19927747-ADNFCR
