What is an Occupational Therapist (OT)?

Choosing a career in Occupational Therapy is not only a career path that will change your life but presents the opportunity to make a lasting impact in the lives of others by sharing your kindness and care. Occupational Therapy focuses on improving patients’ ability to perform specific, daily activities. OTs create treatment plans that focus on the adaptation, correction, and introduction of new movements so that a patient can improve how they conduct everyday functions. Examples may include buttoning a shirt, working on a computer, or organizing household tools. OTs provide the opportunity to improve the lives of their patients.

Occupational Therapist Duties

Some of the responsibilities of an occupational therapist include:

  • Assessing patients' physical, cognitive, and communication skills
  • Creating treatment plans individualized for each patient
  • Assist patients in being involved in everyday activities
  • Tracking patient progress through treatment plans
  • Keeping records and notes of therapy sessions

The requirements to become an occupational therapist are to receive a Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field of study. In all states except Colorado, it is required to have a Master’s degree in occupational therapy. The certification requirements vary based on your state, but all states require you to take and pass an exam from the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy.
