MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (April 7, 2016)—Students interested in studying occupational therapy can find out more about Milligan College’s graduate OT program on Friday, April 15, from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Students will meet in Milligan’s OT Lab located on the lower level of Hardin Hall.
Dr. Jeff Snodgrass, director of Milligan’s Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT) program, will give students an overview of the program and lead a Q-and-A session afterwards. He has been a certified occupational therapist for 20 years, publishing research extensively in peer-reviewed journals and authoring several book chapters in the areas of leadership, rehabilitation and prevention of work-related disorders.
In addition, Snodgrass is responsible for instructing courses in Milligan’s OT program in the areas of work rehabilitation, leadership and management of health services, and health care administration and policy. He earned his Bachelor of Science in occupational therapy from Eastern Kentucky University, a Master of Public Health from East Tennessee State University, and a Doctorate of Health Science from Trident International University.
Students also will have the opportunity to take a campus tour, review the admissions process and talk with current OT students.
“This event is the perfect opportunity for students to learn more about what it’s like to be an occupational therapy student at Milligan,” said Jennifer Duran, admissions recruiter for healthcare programs. “The experience of touring the OT lab and Milligan’s campus as well as interacting with Milligan’s expert faculty is invaluable for a student considering the program.”
The M.S.O.T. program is the only master’s level occupational therapy program in Northeast Tennessee. It prepares therapists to help people with injuries or illnesses to relearn basic living skills. The program is designed for people with undergraduate degrees in a variety of academic fields.
