Michaelann Gabriele OTD ‘13, MA ‘12

Hometown: Los Angeles, CA

Program: OTD, Class of 2013

Track: Policy and Administrative Leadership

In my OTD, I focused on understanding the effects of healthcare policies on the pediatric population’s access and reimbursement to care. I took OT 610: Sensory Integration to develop expertise in a specific area of pediatric practice and PM 585: Child Health Policy, a Preventive Medicine course at the USC Keck School of Medicine for an in-depth look at policy issues that address the pediatric population and insight into how such policies are developed. Through my coursework and residency at a private pediatric clinic, I developed a deeper understanding of business plans and administrative techniques that keep occupational therapy clinics running smoothly and positioned myself for leadership roles as I continue in my career.
