Introduction

Department of Occupational Therapy

An occupational therapist is a medical specialist who provides therapeutic activities so that people with impaired function can live independently. There is growing demand for occupational therapists as the demand for rehabilitation increases due to the increasing aging population, industrial accidents, and traffic accidents.
The Department of Occupational Therapy was established in 2013. Five professors with rich clinical backgrounds teach students and run courses that comply with the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) standards. We obtained the 17th place of the WFOT Education Certificate among the universities in which the department of occupational therapy is established. We are continuing clinical practice and volunteering through business agreements with various clinical institutions such as University Hospitals, General Hospitals, Rehabilitation Hospitals, Mental Hospitals, Children's Hospitals, Dementia Relief Centers, Child Development Centers, Elderly Welfare Centers, and Public Health Centers.
The pass rate of the occupational therapist's national examination is higher than the annual average (The passing rate of the national examination: 2017: 95.6%, 2018: 100%, 2019: 100%).
