Background Information

In 2014, a small group of thinkers from the Pacific University School of Occupational Therapy and the Occupational Therapy Association of Oregon came together to talk about a collaboration between the two groups that would provide continuing education courses to occupational therapists.

Out of this meeting, a small committee was formed to plan these continuing education events four times a year. The topics are varied, but our goal has always been the same; to provide OTs with quality continuing education at a low-cost, easy-to-access venue. Before each event, we also provide OTs with the opportunity to get together to socialize. Come join us!


Do you want to present for us? Have ideas on topics you’d like to see? Know a passionate practitioner who would like to share their expertise with fellow OTs?
