Intro to OTA Course Focus:
Students learn the history, principles, philosophies and terminology of the profession in addition to the investigating scope of practice, practice areas and emerging niches of practice.  Diagnoses commonly treated in occupational therapy, models of practice, and occupational therapy domain and process are discussed. Evidence-based practice, ethics, legal issues and professional behaviors are discussed while career options in occupational therapy are explored.  Visits for job shadowing of local clinicians are required and the student is responsible to arrange for these meetings on their own. 
 

Course will be delivered through Canvas via Internet access.  Students are expected to inform/orientate themselves of the requirements of the course and its delivery methods by reviewing the syllabus and course outline, access assignments online, link to applicable websites, download pertinent information, participate and post to a course discussion board as required, demonstrate critical thinking in written, other assignments, exams and by attending an orientation to online learning if needed. Students are also expected to demonstrate professional behaviors in the online classroom, through correspondence and when visiting clinics.

 

Advanced Health Science Course Focus:
The National Health Science Standards are designed to provide essential knowledge common across health professions to prepare and increase the number of students that are college and career ready. These standards include human anatomy and physiology, communications, healthcare delivery systems, employability skills, legal responsibilities, ethics, team work, safety practices, health maintenance practices, technical skills and information technology applications.

 

Medical Terminology Course Focus:
The Medical Terminology course will help students understand the Greek- and Latin-based language of medicine and healthcare. Emphasis is placed upon word roots, suffixes, prefixes, abbreviations, symbols, anatomical terms, and terms associated with movement of the human body. This course also stresses the proper pronunciation, spelling, and usage of medical terminology. This class is helpful to anyone considering going into the healthcare field.
