Health Sciences: Occupational Therapy Assistant
Associate of Applied Science (AAS)
Community College of Rhode Island in Warwick, RI
Occupational therapy is the use of purposeful activity and interventions to promote health and achieve functional outcomes in performance areas such as activities of daily living, work, and productive activities, and play or leisure activities. Achieving functional outcomes means to develop, improve or restore the highest level of independence to any individual who is limited by physical injury or illness, cognitive impairment, psychosocial dysfunction, mental illness, developmental or learning disability or an adverse environmental condition. Occupational therapy helps people of all ages lead productive, satisfying lives. The Occupational Therapy Assistant program is offered at the Newport County Campus. It is an evening/weekend program; however, fieldwork experiences are offered during the day. Although Occupational Therapy Assistant courses are offered at the Newport County Campus, the required general education courses may be taken at other CCRI campuses or sites prior to acceptance. All fieldwork courses shall be completed within 18 months following completion of the academic preparation. Students successfully completing the accredited program earn an Associate in Applied Science degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant (AAS_OCTA) and are eligible to sit for the national certification examination for occupational therapy assistants, which is administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy, Inc. (NBCOT). An individual must successfully pass the certification examination to apply for licensure to practice as a certified occupational therapy assistant in the state of Rhode Island.

biomed: molecular biology, cell biology, and biochemistry: mcb students are required to successfully complete a minimum of five courses worth six credits for the doctoral degree. typically, mcb students will complete the course work outlined below during their first three semesters. curricular tracksthe course work is anchored by two core classes; a literature-based class on multidisciplinary experimental approaches to biological questions (biol2030 "foundations for advanced study in experimental biology," two credits) in the first semester, and a class on scientific communication skills (biol2150 "scientific communication," one credit) in the third semester. upon matriculation, students may choose among three curricular tracks. the mcb track provides advanced training in cell, developmental, and molecular biology, and biochemistry; the fcg track provides advanced training in computational and systems biology, and the mboa track provides training in the molecular mechanisms of aging. each of the tracks incorporates quantitative methodologies into the analysis of biological systems but emphasizes different approaches. training in molecular biology, cell biology and biochemistry (mcb) students interested in pursuing advanced study in the life sciences may choose the mcb curricular track as their course of study once admitted to the mcb graduate program. the mcb curriculum is aimed at students with a primary interest in molecular biology, cell biology, developmental biology, proteomics and/or biochemistry. mcb students will gain instruction in quantitative approaches to biological processes including statistics and bioinformatics through "quantitative approaches in biology" (biol2010, one credit) during the second semester. the goals of this course are to strengthen necessary mathematical skills and to gain understanding of quantitative approaches required to address complex problems in modern biology. mcb students can tailor their course work to the disciplines specifically related to their interests through a combination of didactic courses and topical seminars offered in each of the disciplines. in addition to biol2010, biol2030, and biol2150, students are expected to complete a minimum of two 2000-level electives, with at least one 2000-level seminar format course, in fulfillment of the requirements for their doctoral degree. the seminar courses are designed to offer students in-depth training in specific topics in molecular biology, cell biology, developmental biology, proteomics and biochemistry. training in functional and computational genetics (fcg) students with a strong interest in advanced training in both biology and computational approaches may choose fcg curricular track as their course of study once admitted to the mcb graduate program. the fcg curriculum is aimed at students with a primary background in biology, but also with appropriate mathematical preparation (college-level calculus) and interest in applying advanced quantitative methodologies towards the understanding of gene function and regulation in development and disease. in the second semester, students will supplement their genetic training from biol2030 with additional advanced coursework in genetics. possibilities include "molecular genetics " (biol2540) or topical seminar offerings in genetics and/or genomics. the remainder of the formal fcg curriculum is dedicated to developing advanced skills in quantitative approaches to biological problems. based on their interests, fcg students may choose to tailor their mathematical training along either of two paths: genomics - students can select between an applied mathematics track or a computer science track. for the applied mathematics track, in the first semester training in statistical analysis of complex datasets will begin with "statistical inference" (apma 1650) and will continue in the second semester with "inference in genomics and molecular biology" (apma 1080). for the computer science track, training in computer programming will be achieved through "introduction to object-oriented programming and computer science" (csci 0150) in the first semester and "introduction to algorithms and data structures" (csci0160) in the second semester, or through "computer science: an integrated introduction" (csci 0170 fall/csci 0180 spring). the training will continue in the third semester with "computational molecular biology" (csci 1810). systems biology - in the first semester, training in the mathematical modeling of biological systems will begin with "methods of applied mathematics i" (apma 0330 or apma 0350). the choice between the apma courses is based on the student’s interests. apma 0330 emphasizes the application of established methods, while apma 0350 focuses on the development of methodological foundations. in the second semester, training will continue with "methods of applied mathematics ii" (apma 0340 or apma 0360). students interested in systems biology will conclude their formal course work requirement in mathematics with "quantitative models of biological systems" (apma 1070) in the third semester. training in the molecular biology of aging
