Pre-Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists work with individuals experiencing short-term or life-long physical, mental, and emotional disabilities.  Therapists help patients overcome obstacles and move toward good physical and emotional health.  Students in the pre-occupational therapy program at K-State build the needed background for entrance into occupational therapy bachelors, masters, or doctoral degree programs.
