Employment Resources and Professions Available to Occupational Therapy Graduates

Occupational therapists are generally employed in hospitals, chronic care facilities, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, schools, or social agencies. Some occupational therapists specialize in working with a specific age group or disability such as arthritis, autism, mental illness, or spinal cord injury. Other occupational therapists work in daycare centers, in assistive technology programs,Šand addictions centers. There they work with clients to manage disabilities, chronic illnesses, and work-related injuries.

Occupational therapists can also work outside the healthcare industry, working instead for medical supply firms, insurance companies, and correctional facilities. Those with a degree in OT can also teach at the university level while doing independent research.

A degree in OT can also be used for a future career in medicine, PT, nursing, palliative care, social work, and many other health-related fields. As well, it can be used for a career in workplace law and various government positions in public health.
