BRIEF INTRODUCTION
   Occupational therapy assists people of all ages with disabilities to become
independent in their daily activities. By using purposeful activities, occupational
therapists maximize patients’ independence, prevent disabilities, and enhance
health. Due to an increasingly older population and higher incidence of chronic
physical and mental disorders in Taiwan, the need for occupational therapists
becomes more and more critical. Based on the belief of meeting the needs of our
society, the National Cheng Kung University developed the Program of
Occupational Therapy, in 1990. In 2003, a master level graduate program was
further established to meet the urgent need for higher educated occupational
therapy practitioners. The School has admirable faculty, and state-of-the-art
teaching and research equipments. To educate distinguished occupational therapists
and to meet the current trend of occupational therapy profession, the department
continually recruits qualified teachers and improves our teaching facilities.

TEACHING OBJECTIVES
  The faculty considers the cultivation of excellent occupational therapy
practitioners as the most important teaching goal. Graduates of the School would
work as clinicians, educators, administrators and researchers in the occupational
therapy profession. Therefore, our teaching emphasizes the training of professional
abilities, practice of research projects and nature of administrative concepts. The
faculty and students work closely with affiliated hospitals in order to combine
education and clinical practice, and to enhance the quality of patient care as well.
  For graduate program, the School lists several research directions, including:
         Research in neuro-physico-psychological functioning and assessment
         Research in occupational motion analysis
         Research in vocational assessment and rehabilitation
