Ittawamba Community College

Dee Dee Lomenick has been named as interim program director of the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program at Ittawamba Community College. The new Academic Fieldwork Coordinator will soon be named. ICC’s 9th class of students will be beginning the program this fall. We are working on our self-study which is due in December, with our site visit scheduled for March of 2016. As you can see we are busy, busy, busy, but very excited as we gear up for a new school year.

Pearl River Community College

PRCC’s Occupational Therapy Assistant program is currently preparing our self-study and we are expecting our site visit from ACOTE in the Spring of 2016. We are also excited to welcome our incoming freshman class this fall as our sophomores begin Level I fieldwork rotations with the most amazing fieldwork educators in MS and LA.

University of Mississippi Medical Center

The UMMC MOT program is busy as always with three levels of classes. On May 26, 2015, the UMMC MOT Program welcomed 40 incoming students. The new Class of 2018 has had a busy summer adjusting to the great adventures of being a student at SHRP.

The OT2 class participated in the last Taste of the U during the spring semester and brought home 1st runner up for overall showmanship. The OT2 class also had several students who had the opportunity to participate in a new horticulture club with Dr. Steve Watson and Officer Marcus Blanton.

The OT3s completed the first 12 week fieldwork on July 31, 2015. The students were spread across several states. We are very thankful to our clinical instructors for their continued support to educate future OTs.

Fall semester began with a bang on August 10th with all three OT classes. We miss our recent graduates who are all busy securing first OT jobs and passing boards! They did a great job presenting their Masters research projects at MSOTA’s spring conference! Photos below!
