The University of Saint Mary is promoting healthier and more productive lives for all populations with the launch of its new Doctor of Occupational Therapy program.

The inaugural cohort arrived in June to begin the three-year program.

“We are excited to watch the program grow and for our students to share their talents and knowledge with the world,” said Andy Wu, founding program director and assistant professor of occupational therapy. “USM’s unique focus on fieldwork will provide students with the experience and skills needed to establish successful careers and make a meaningful impact.”

Wu previously served as the founding program director and assistant professor of occupational therapy at Cleveland University-Kansas City. He amassed clinical experiences at the Rehabilitation Institute of Kansas City and Life Care Centers of America in Grandview, Mo. He has also published articles focused on patient rehabilitation and improved function after strokes.

“Occupational therapy is a growing and fulfilling career path that we are excited to bring to students at the University of Saint Mary,” Wu said. “USM graduates will have the education and training necessary to contribute to the wellbeing of our global society, which is at the heart of USM’s mission.”
