You’ve always loved helping people and found an interest in those sluggish science classes. Whether you prefer to diagnose, treat, or prevent, it’s obvious healthcare is the place for you.
In healthcare, you need others, and they definitely need you. The healthcare industry added 271,000 new positions last year, and the upward trend is continuing in 2014. Job boards have already seen a 16% increase in healthcare job postings compared to this time last year*.
There's a shortage of healthcare professionals worldwide. With an overall aging population and the increasing complexity of the healthcare system, the time has never been better to be a trained and qualified healthcare professional. If it’s time to start your healthcare career, up, up and away!*HealthECareers, http://www.healthecareers.com/article/healthcare-job-outlook-most-new-jobs-projected/174918

Seeking a meaningful career that’s also lucrative and in high demand? Occupational therapy is all of the above. Occupational therapists (OT’s) help people build the skills they need to live their fullest lives—from helping children write with pencils to helping adults regain the ability to dress themselves after a stroke. OT students can always expect to do clinical fieldwork at off-campus sites; it’s a program requirement wherever you go. But at Brenau some students can complete a portion of their fieldwork right on campus. The School of Occupational Therapy is home to a community clinic called the Center for Productive Living. At the clinic, students are supervised by licensed occupational therapists as they help adult clients develop the ability to perform everyday activities like grooming and preparing meals. Of course, even if you complete some fieldwork at the clinic, you’ll head off-campus for clinical experience as well. Students are placed at some of the university’s over 300 sites, including medical and rehabilitation settings. If you’re itching to travel, complete your level II fieldwork in Merida, Yucatan! You’ll gain global perspective by working with Mexican clients and clinicians. Brenau provides variety beyond fieldwork options. You can select a program pathway that best fits your schedule: day program, hybrid day program, or hybrid weekend program. That’s Brenau helping students like you pursue a fulfilling career helping others.
