Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The purpose of this mixed-methods study was to explore how OT students and professors view student stress caused by curricular requirements. Quantitative surveys and qualitative interviews were used to gather their perspectives. Both students and professors identified moderate to high levels of student stress affecting student relationships and well-being and suggested the need for educator awareness and curricular modification for remediation of this challenging problem.
