"I’ve treated every population you can imagine, and I’ve worked in many, many settings and there has not been one day that I’ve been unhappy with my choice."
Gayla Aguilar
Director of Fieldwork Education
"OT is one of the few careers where it is difficult to be bored. Once certified, an OT may choose to work with children, adults or the elderly, in hospitals, schools or community settings, in cities or rural areas. An OT may choose to work full-time or part-time. There are so many niches, opportunities, and ever-developing innovative options."
