Occupational Therapy 

Occupational therapy continues to be an essential part of a person’s habilitation and rehabilitation from illness, injury, or a congenital condition. As the science to improve quality of life strengthens, occupational therapy is moving rapidly toward increased community practice with non-traditional populations and settings, including wellness opportunities, programming for underserved populations, and early intervention in primary care. Support Occupational Therapy and help provide equipment to improve students’ clinical skills to treat pediatric clients and pay honorariums to guest lecturers from community practice settings when you give GOLD geaux purple!

The Department of Physical Therapy trains students to provide physical therapy services across a patient’s lifespan.  The mission of the program is to develop graduates with clinical skills in physical therapy that includes physical therapy diagnosis, clinical reasoning, program planning, therapeutic interventions, and patient education. Support Physical Therapy and help provide updated equipment to allow students to practice specialized aspects of physical therapy patient care when you give GOLD geaux purple!

Physician Assistant 

The Department of Physician Assistant Studies trains future healthcare providers to conduct physical examinations, diagnose and treat illnesses, assist in surgery, manage chronic conditions, perform medical procedures, and educate patients.  The program prepares students with the knowledge and clinical skills necessary to provide medical care to patients across their lifespans. Help us provide Point-of-Care ultrasound training for the students, Simulated/“real” patients, and an Electronic medical record program for students with your support when you give GOLD geaux purple!
