All licensed physical therapists and physical therapy assistants are encouraged to attend our courses. Some of our courses are also open to occupational therapists (OT). Courses intended for both a PT and OT audience will be designated as such in the marketing materials. USC is an approved provider of continuing education courses through the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA).
