Conference Information

The 2022 OT Research Summit aspires to activate leadership in science so that OT/OS scientists form and lead diverse interdisciplinary research teams to advance occupational therapy, occupational science, and improve quality of life. The summit is designed for career scientists at every stage of development.

Participants will:

1. Be inspired by an overview of OT/OS researchers currently leading successful collaborative teams.

2. Hear directly from funders of team-based projects and successfully funded OT/OS researchers.

3. Engage with content experts in brainstorming future ideas for collaboration around specific research areas.

4. Participate in a small group “Works in Progress” sessions as either an expert consultant, presenter, discussion participant, or observer.

5. Network with others who desire to see OT leadership in science flourish and grow.


Who is this conference for?

  • Current and future career scientists who are participating in OT/OS related research and have or are working to fund an externally funded research program. We encourage and welcome a diverse group of researchers.


Who might also want to attend?

  • University administrators, OT program directors, potential funders, and others who play a role in supporting and nurturing career scientists for funded OT/OS related research.

  • This conference is primarily funded by UW-Madison, UW-Milwaukee, CSU and MUSC with additional support from key sponsors (please contact us for sponsorship opportunities).

The OT Summit Executive Board is focused on promotion and improvement of the diversity of OT/OS research scientists. To this end, if travel assistance would help to benefit your career direction, please consider applying for the OT Summit Outstanding Scholar Award.
