Harcum Students Learning At MCES

Friday, January 26, 2018

The Allied Therapy Department has hosted Level II Occupational Therapy Assistant students from Harcum College in Bryn Mawr for a number of years.

The current two-month rotation started on January 8. After graduation, the students will go on to work with Registered Occupational Therapists (OTR) in using every-day activities to help people prevent, lessen, or overcome disabilities affecting independent living. Serious mental illness is one such disability.

At MCES, the students apply their skills and knowledge to help our inpatients get ready for their return to community living and enhance their life satisfaction. Their efforts are always greatly appreciated by our patients.
