AOTA Involvement

SOTA facilitates student’s involvement with the American Occupational Therapy Association, the field’s leading national association. Students frequently attend AOTA’s annual conference, as well the Massachusetts Association of Occupational Therapy’s (MAOT) statewide conference. Tufts has had both faculty and students present at these events.

Outside of annual conference attendance, the executive board’s AOTA representative has facilitated advocacy activities, such as letter writing to our state representative about relevant healthcare policy, as well as leading AOTA “boot camp” to prepare students for conference attendance.

Tufts was recently recognized by AOTA as having 100% student membership, qualifying the University as Gold Level members.
