"I cannot say enough about the post-bach program at CSM. I have completely had my love for occupational therapy validated. This program has given me the flexibility to tailor my studies to areas related to my job in acute rehab at Methodist Hospital. I am completing research related to the use of COPM to assist with client goal setting and I am so excited as this research is evidenced based and validates the role of occupational therapy in an interdisciplinary team. The OT program at CSM is just as I would want it to be clinically based and hands on!"
