Teaching tomorrow’s practitioners by serving today’s families.
TigerOT is a program that provides hands-on clinical opportunities for student practitioners in both traditional outpatient settings and the community. Student practitioners work collaboratively with clients of all ages and backgrounds to maximize potential in every aspects of daily life. TigerOT provides students authentic learning experiences which connect classroom educational learning to the real life needs of clients, in everyday places such as the home, preschools and recreational settings. Students also learn important skills such as collaboration with community partners in order to address programmatic and systemic needs.
