Occupational therapists work with clients to build or restore their abilities to perform daily tasks or “occupations” by utilizing a holistic approach. Each client is evaluated to determine not only the reason abilities have been impacted, but also to establish a personalized therapy plan that considers an individual’s responsibilities and everyday environment.


The Walsh University Occupational Therapy program distinguishes itself as being a leader in academic excellence and interprofessional education. It promotes evidence-based practice through research activities that further develop and advance the occupational therapy body of literature. Occupational justice is emphasized through student service learning activities and international experiences.
