This is the only advanced certificate of its kind being offered in occupational therapy, and allows occupational therapists to develop advanced skills for implementing evidence into real-world practice at the individual and system levels. 

“During this program, I was able to learn more about critical analysis of research and how to share research with different types of audiences.”
