After 75 years, UW-Madison’s occupational therapy program building on tradition of excellence

UW-Madison’s occupational therapy program, which is housed within the School of Education’s Department of Kinesiology and is regarded as one of the very best in the United States, is hosting a 75th anniversary celebration Sept. 13-15. “We are not simply celebrating a program’s longevity,” says School of Education Dean Diana Hess. “The exceptional research, scholarship and instruction that have kept our university’s OT program at the forefront of its field for decades are both impressive and worthy of this wonderful occasion.”
