About

From providing you with the foundations of professional occupational therapy to helping you with HIPAA training and examination, American International College’s (AIC) Occupational Therapy program at American International College, provides a comprehensive educational approach. For current undergraduates looking for more information, visit the OT page on myAIC (student login required).

Overview

Whether it’s redesigning a play area for a child in a wheelchair, planning holiday shopping strategies for an adult with heart and breathing problems, or modifying job tasks so a returning veteran with a traumatic brain injury can return to work…Occupational Therapists (OT’s) make a difference in people’s lives.

Guided by a belief in the power of being physically, mentally, spiritually and socially active, OT’s assist people who are at risk for medical/psychological problems to prevent injury or health conditions by leading healthy and productive lives
