OT Faculty Scholarship

Faculty members in the Department of Occupational Therapy regularly publish in leading academic and professional journals, present at conferences, and secure grants – all with the goal of improving techniques and care practices to help improve the lives of patients. Our faculty, a majority of whom are practicing clinicians in leading hospitals and health care centers, integrate their research into the classroom and clinical settings to provide students with the most up-to-date information that will help them become better occupational therapists. The scholarship and awards listed below includes MGH Institute OT students and alumni as well as faculty members.
