Organization profile

Occupational therapy is the use of purposeful activity for individuals who are limited by physical injury or illness, psychosocial dysfunction, developmental or learning disabilities, or the aging process in order to maximize independence, prevent disability, and maintain health. Recently, due to an increasingly older population and higher incidences of chronic physical and mental disorders, the need for occupational therapists is critical in Taiwan. Based on the belief of meeting the needs of the society, National Cheng Kung University founded the Program of Occupational Therapy, a subdivision of the Rehabilitation Medicine Department in 1990. In 1994 it was expanded as an independent department, of Occupational Therapy. In 2003 , the master program of occupational therapy began in the department, and the doctor program of occupational therapy began in the institute of allied health sciences. The School owns admirable faculty, and up-to-date teaching and research equipments. For educating excellent occupational therapists, the administration continually plans to bring in more qualified teachers and to further improve teaching facilities.
