Volunteering & Observing at OKOT
We publicize our openings for volunteer mentorships and paid positions to our Jobs email list. Due to the increasing number of inquiries we receive, we cannot respond to individual emails inquiring about volunteering, observing, or working with OKOT.
Questions about Occupational Therapy?
We wholeheartedly support you in pursuing OT as a profession and in your early career endeavors! Since we can’t respond to individual emails, we’ve tried to compile a list of recommended resources here based on frequently asked questions from pre-OT students.
For those of you considering OT as a career, there are some excellent resources available online to answer almost any question you would have. Here are some that we highly recommend:
American Occupational Therapy Association website- Considering an OT career? https://www.aota.org/Education-Careers/Considering-OT-Career.aspx
MamaOT blog- Resources for Prospective Students (including an E-book): http://mamaot.com/for-prospective-students/
And here's a fun news piece NPR did about occupational therapy and our job security...since we can't be replaced by robots or technology! https://www.marketplace.org/shows/marketplace-morning-report/04132017
