Cincinnati Children's has one of the largest pediatric training programs within a single institution in the country. Our Division of OT/PT provides clinical educational opportunities to students from many universities. Each year we help train students to be better prepared for a career in pediatric therapy. Many of these students have such a positive experience while here at Cincinnati Children's that they apply for permanent positions with us.

Our Clinical Advancement Program provides therapists with an opportunity to be recognized for their advanced clinical skills, increase their income, and become more involved in leadership roles within the organization.

This unique program provides the opportunity for clinical therapists who demonstrate leadership, advanced clinical knowledge and skills to grow professionally throughout their careers. Cincinnati Children's believes that recognizing, rewarding and retaining experienced therapists in positions of direct patient care will improve the quality of patient care.

These researchers are helping to shape the lives of our patients and the future of occupational therapy and physical therapy practice.

Our goal is to lead improvements in child health by contributing to the body of knowledge regarding the effectiveness of OT and PT interventions.
