Every clinician in the healthcare industry has specific standards and licensing requirements that must be met in order for them to practice in their discipline. All practicing occupational therapists (OT) and occupational therapy assistants (OTA), must ensure that they keep their professional license updated and in good standing by meeting the requirements and regulations of the state in which they live and work. In order to practice occupational therapy in the State of Florida, an OT or OTA must be licensed by the State Department of Health, with renewal every 2 years. The purpose of this course is to review the laws and rules governing the profession of occupational therapy in the State of Florida.
