Occupational Therapy Students Collaborate with Future OT Assistants

OT-OTA-CollaborationFirst-year doctoral students in Belmont’s School of Occupational Therapy recently hosted students and faculty from the Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) program at Nashville State Community College (NSCC) as part of their preparation for upcoming fieldwork experiences.

Ms. Donna Whitehouse, associate professor and director of NSCC’s OTA program, was joined by OTA students, Ashley Collins, Amber Sevier-Hunt and Chelsey Morton, in sharing information about OTA curriculum, roles and responsibilities of an OTA and supervision guidelines.  The purpose of the class was to familiarize the students with how OTs and OTAs collaborate to deliver occupational therapy services.
