A message from the chair:
Welcome all! It is a pleasure to welcome back our second year students who are deep in courses that challenge their clinical reasoning and knowledge. To welcome our first year students who, after successfully completing the challenging summer courses in anatomy and neuroanatomy, are ready to start learning to “be an OT.” To welcome our international students who have traveled many thousands of miles to join us to further develop their skills as occupational therapists. To welcome our returning practitioners who are seeking to expand their skill and expertise by taking courses and getting new degrees.
By coming to Tufts you have chosen to face new and stimulating tasks and problems that test your abilities in a variety of ways. These challenges require resilience, time management, and a healthy sense of humor. Given the numerous obstacles we are all facing, students and faculty alike, I would urge everyone to find ways to be kind to others and, equally importantly, kind to themselves.
“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” (Maya Angelou)
