Professional Program in Occupational Therapy Student Research Projects

OT-GE 2725 Research Interpretation of Occupational Therapy

This course focuses on students’ knowledge development within occupational therapy both as a professional consumer of research & as a contributor to the growth of the profession. Students will learn to evaluate clinical literature, determine the evidence level of a clinical study & appraise the applications in everyday practice. In addition, students will work closely with seminar instructors throughout this semester to complete a scholarly report. A scholarly report can be, but not limited to a critical appraisal topic (CAT) in a specific clinical area, or a data-driven research project.
