One guest, a man with a son in college and a daughter finishing high school, asked Mike if he had to do it over again, would he become a physician. Mike, without ...

  • Online Occupational Therapy?

    I don't watch much television, but last night, while dozing, I caught the tail end of a commercial advertising a telehealth service that consumers can subscribe to. I was curious and did a bit of research about this. From what I could figure out, a consumer can get 24/7 access to a physician via a Skype-like service to diagnose a health problem. ...

  • Working PRN Over the Holidays: It’s a good thing!

  • Have You Thought About Malpractice and OT?

    In the mid-1980s, I started doing nursing home occupational therapy consulting. Jobs came to me via word-of-mouth and I ultimately built up a comfortable number of clients to provide service to.

  • Occupational Therapy versus Bureaucracy

    We all know that the hallmark of a great OT is one who is creative, a problem solver and someone who can think outside of the box.  It comes as no surprise that it a great OT might butt heads with a giant bureaucracy, in this case the NYC Department of Education.

  • Will the FTC Slow Down the Current Medical Merger Mania?

    Many of us remember the merger mania in healthcare that occurred in the 1990's, and how the push toward consolidation that started with hospitals trickled down to the private practice  therapy sector.

  • Becoming a Travelling Occupational Therapist

    It seems that a week does not go by without receiving a phone call from a recruiting company offering me a full time position ''in my area''.  Many of these jobs are with companies that also employ travelling therapists.  Some of the opportunities that have come my way have been for a travelling OT.
