Occupational Therapy

Michelle Barr, BS '03, MS '04


Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) | Occupational Therapist

Thomas Jefferson University gave me a strong basis of knowledge in many treatment areas, including non-traditional areas such as clinics. Thomas Jefferson University helps you to think beyond traditional occupational therapy roles, to be open to new opportunities and to get involved in innovative areas.
