As a USC Chan alumna, I am thankful to serve in this capacity, where I have the opportunity to impact potential occupational therapists at the beginning of their journey. Learning about an applicant’s passions and reasons why they want to pursue occupational therapy is a very humbling experience. Providing a holistic admissions process is not only something I value, but it allows for our team to work towards increasing the diversity in our student body and workforce.
