MedPro is Celebrating Occupational Therapy Month!

April is Occupational Therapy Month and here at MedPro Staffing we are lucky enough to have some of the best Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants in the business representing us.

Occupational therapy practitioners are skilled professionals whose education includes the study of human growth and development with specific emphasis on the physical, emotional, psychological, sociocultural, cognitive and environmental components of illness and injury. Occupational Therapy was officially recognized in the U.S. nearly a century ago with the founding of the Society for the Promotion of Occupational Therapy, now the American Occupational Therapy Association.

Growth in America’s elderly population has kept the demand high for Occupational Therapists and in 2012 it was ranked as #7 best job by U.S. News Best Jobs. Here at MedPro we see a huge increase in needs and we try every day to bring more therapists into our growing family. MedPro has Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants working across a broad spectrum of society, from schoolchildren to elderly patients in long term care facilities.

We would like to take a moment to recognize the significant impact these individuals make in our lives and thank them for their dedication and caring.
