From the Dean

Dean Trevor Young,


Doing What We Love

They say that if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. But, what happens when — because of mental health, injury, or disability — you’re unable to do that work? You call an occupational therapist.

Next week, the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy will mark its 100th anniversary, and it will soon begin an exciting new chapter with the expansion of the MScOT program to the University of Toronto Mississauga.
