WHAT IS PI THETA EPSILON?

Pi Theta Epsilon (PTE) is a specialized honor society for occupational therapy students and alumni.

At present, the mission of Pi Theta Epsilon is to promote research and scholarship among occupational therapy students. Pi Theta Epsilon supports the development of occupational science and the practice of authentic occupational therapy by promoting research andother scholarly activities of its members. In this way, the organization serves not only the profession but also helps to ensure quality health care services for the general public (http://www.aotf.org/pithetaepsilon.aspx)
