Occupational Therapy
Summit of Scholars

~History of OT Summit~

The Occupational Therapy Summit of Scholars, affectionately known as the “OT Research Summit”, was created in 2012 by senior occupational therapy scientists under the leadership of Carolyn Baum, Florence Clark, Janice Burke, and Yolanda Suarez-Balcazar.


The sustained purposes of the Summit are to:

  • Bring OT scholars together to share their research and obtain feedback.

  • Provide a venue for scientists to network, develop new contacts, and formulate innovative ideas to advance the field.

  • Mentor young scientists so as to develop networks of junior and senior scientists.

  • Provide a venue to move the science of occupational therapy forward by building knowledge of occupation and health.
