The third-ranked job, occupational therapist, also came in third last year. Like dental hygienists, occupational therapists tend to work a 9-5 schedule and to determine their own level of commitment. They help people in physically demanding jobs like construction, get back to work, as opposed to physical therapists, No. 5 on the list, who treat more general injuries. Their median annual income is $75,000 and the BLS projects a growth rate of 33% from 2010-2020.
"Occupational therapists work with the injured or ill and use routine activities to speed rehabilitation. Demand for their skills is high as they focus on modifying each patient's physical environment while training them to use equipment to increase independence."
This program helped me to understand that my skills will never be perfect and I will never know all the answers in this career field; however I do know that I have the tools and skills necessary to find the answers to any problem that may arise during my career as an OT.
Preparing and presenting this inservice felt very natural to me, and I believe I have the MOT program to thank for this....
