News & Community Resources

The EWU Department of Occupational Therapy invites you to:

  • Stay up-to-date on events sponsored by the OT Department
  • Read our stories highlighting students, faculty and alumni
  • Post job openings


Each year, occupational therapists, fieldwork educators, student coordinators of Eastern occupational students’ fieldwork placements and other community partners are invited to participate and provide structured feedback for student applicants to Eastern Washington University’s MOT program.

Participants can join for as little as a couple of hours to an all day experience as several “teams” of students move through an interviewing process. The process includes a group interview, team building activity and program orientation. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Lee Knous, Secretary Sr., at lknous@ewu.edu.

The Class of 2025 interview day is scheduled for Saturday January 14, 2023.
