Over the last 4 years, Misericordia University Occupational Therapy Department has always encouraged me to aim high, engage in new learning opportunities and believe in my abilities as a student. The OT department has opened so many doors to my learning that I am forever thankful for. I have engaged in incredible opportunities such as completing my Level I Fieldwork right here on campus at our very own Sensory Social Camp, allowing me to fulfill my passion for pediatrics, while also embracing a new-found path for research through the Student Undergraduate Research Fellowship. None of these opportunities would have been possible without the guidance and encouragement of our faculty and staff members. Our professors have such as passion for their student’s success. Their doors are always open, they want to help when you need it and they want to see you succeed as students and future OT’s. I truly believe that the opportunities MUOT has provided me with along with the constant support and guidance from my professors has prepared me for my career as a future OT. The MUOT experience is one like no other, we are an OT family, and I will always be thankful for the people, the experiences and the knowledge this program has provided me, allowing me to grow into the student I am today!

What makes the Occupational Therapy Department at Misericordia stand out above the rest? The number one reason I will tell you is that our faculty is superior. They care so much about our academic as well as our personal well-being. Our success is their number one priority. Our professors want to know us.  They impart to us the feeling and sense of family, and that we are not merely just students who are a number like many larger  schools. In our department everyone knows your name. Our professors take notice when we are having a rough week and will reach out to make sure we are okay. They want to ensure that not only are we succeeding in the classroom, but we have a good occupational work/leisure balance. Our program is staffed with some of the most knowledgeable and insightful professors there are. They push us to go beyond our comfort zones to learn the necessary skills to be the best therapists possible. Their doors are always open in Passan Hall, and we are encouraged to pop in and talk to them. With the constant support of our professors, and that little bit of extra motivation from them, I feel that Misericordia has prepared me to be the best possible Occupational Therapist. I will be able to bring creative ideas, the best knowledge, and the determination to be as successful as possible. For that, I am forever thankful to our faculty. We are one big family and are all MU OT Proud.
