The Misericordia University National Occupational Therapy Honor Society Chapter, Pi Theta Epsilon, is holding a Classic Car Show on Saturday, April 12 from noon to 5 p.m. to benefit programming for the local honor society chapter. The rain date is Saturday, April 26.

The fee is $12 the day of the event. For more information, please contact Alyssa Leonard at (484) 894-6279.
Occupational therapy students at Misericordia University are eligible for induction into the Pi Theta Epsilon Chapter by maintaining at least a 3.5 grade point average and by being in the top 20 percent of their class. The students must also display the potential to take on a leadership role in the profession.
The Occupational Therapy Department at Misericordia University has produced highly qualified, technically proficient OT practitioners since 1984. Students accepted into the master’s degree program participate in an educational process that prepares them to become entry-level occupational therapy practitioners. The university offers a five-year Master of Science degree in occupational therapy, and a post-professional occupational therapy doctorate (OTD) degree.
The OTD is one of the few post-professional programs available on the East Coast. It offers specific courses designed for licensed OTs to advance their knowledge and practice competence in areas that include pediatrics and geriatrics. The advanced clinical degree prepares licensed therapists to assume leadership and program development roles. The OTD degree is essential as the profession moves into new emerging areas of practice that require OT practitioners to support independent and productive living in the greater community.

Additional doctoral program details are available by calling Department Chair Grace Fisher, Ed.D., O.T.R./L., associate professor of occupational therapy, at (570)-674-8015.
