Annual Student Conference

The occupational therapy department at Salem State hosts the 13th Annual Student Research Conference on March 21, 2015 at the Holiday Inn, 1 Newbury St. (Route 1N), Peabody, MA. 

Our occupational therapy students plan the conference as a part of their studies and, in the process, learn to: 

  • Obtain a keynote speaker
  • Procure vendors
  • Determine food and media needs
  • Create a brochure
  • Develop a website
  • Organize the conference structure
  • Develop and disseminate participant surveys

Students also present their research results as part of the conference. Occupational therapy practitioners, ancillary health service personnel, faculty members, and students from several local occupational therapy programs attend this exciting annual event.

Registration for the Annual Student Conference opens in early 2015. Bookmark this page for updated information for vendor and conference registration.
