OTAs work in a variety of job settings, including nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, hospitals, mental health centers, and schools.

Each student is required to complete 400 hours of clinical work at one of the multiple facilities committed to working with the North East program.
Graduates, upon successfully completing their program, are encouraged to sit for the NBCOT examination to become a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (COTA).
MLT majors may work in any section of the lab, from Hematology and Coagulation to General Chemistry Immunology, building skills in multiple areas of their field.
