Our faculty and student research serves vulnerable populations, focusing on what people do, and how to make it easier for individuals to lead productive, meaningful and fulfilling lives. We explore our clients’ needs, create new models, methods, treatments and tools to enable them to achieve their goals. Our research provides evidence for occupational therapy practices and takes a consumer directed approach to care. In addition our research advances the use of cutting edge technologies to promote independence and well-being among persons with disabilities and older adults.

MScOT students are actively engaged in research activities throughout their program. In addition to the many national and international research presentations made by students every year, each student presents their research project at our annual Graduate Student Research Day.
