Occupational therapy students in demand

Jessica Dahms (second from right) and Justin Barber (right), both second-year students in the Program in Occupational Therapy, talk with recruiters from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital at the occupational therapy/physical therapy job fair Feb. 25 in the Farrell Learning and Teaching Center. About 30 employers attended the fair. Due to the high demand for therapists in both fields and the reputation of both programs, nearly all of Washington University School of Medicine’s Program in Occupational Therapy and Program in Physical Therapy graduates actively seeking employment have jobs within three months of graduating.
