Amplify OT Membership
Student Edition

The Amplify OT Membership – Student Edition provides on-demand innovative and comprehensive resources students need to be prepared for the realities of working in our US healthcare system. 

Gain access to our key course Mastering OT Policy and Medicare which contains over 30 video lessons you can incorporate into your program. Each lesson is tailored to occupational therapy so gone are the days of teaching general information and hoping it translates to practice. 

Together – we can prepare your students to be OT Amplifiers!

Hi👋! I’m Clarice,

Clarice smiling against pink background

The occupational therapist who brings policy alive and turns fellow OTPs into confident advocates.

I’m an occupational therapist, healthcare policy enthusiast, and the founder of Amplify OT.

As a new grad, I really struggled to understand my role and advocating for myself or my patients. I didn’t understand policy and as a result I got taken advantage. 

As an adjunct, I realized how much time it takes to research policy each night to update some slides and just how much information has to be packed into too little time… 

These frustrations led me to create Amplify OT and to enhance our resources for OT and OTA faculty and programs like yours!

Let’s toss out the old excuse of students learning this stuff on fieldwork. Time to prepare our students to be the leaders we know they can be!

"The additional content definitely helped students to understand how reimbursement can impact their practice. …I noticed more students paying attention to the reimbursement structure and policies when considering their ""ideal"" position for a mock job interview. Several students became excited about advocacy and became heavily engaged in state and national level policy and advocacy as a result. One is planning a capstone in this area for 2024."

We do this through video formats and assess knowledge through multiple choice quiz questions. These quizzes then issue certificates complete with names and scores so you can verify learning.

Amplify OT does provide ACOTE crosswalks and recommended assignments to facilitate learning and meeting standards. However, it is up to the university to ensure they are in compliance with ACOTE standards. Amplify OT cannot guarantee ACOTE will accept any material as acceptable.

Individual student sign ups:

  1. Fill out this quick form with information on your program.

If your program signs up on behalf of students, then use the below directions:

  1. Fill out this quick form with information on your program
  2. We will confirm numbers and information and set up a demo call.
  3. We will send an invoice and confirm activation date.
  4. You send us a list of students and their emails and then we’ll activate student subscriptions on the activation date.

Neither – the subscription starts whenever the student signs up as an individual or on the agreed upon “activation date” for programs. 

This allows for optimal flexiblity for programs that have unique schedule structures or for programs that want to use our resources for multiple semesters.

If students sign up individually, they can choose to access the service for 6 months or one year.

For program memberships, faculty and student accounts maintain access for one year from the activation date. This does not auto-renew.

Through the Amplify OT Membership, your students gain access to our key course, the Mastering OT Policy and Medicare course. This course is 5 modules with videos lasting on average 5-20 minutes in length. Each lesson has a 5 question auto-grading quiz that issues a certificate.

In addition to this program, students have access to all other Amplify OT webinars and courses. They also have access to our community features such as the activity feed, groups and forums, and monthly live meetups and office hours.

Lastly, they have the ability to DM me, Clarice, questions or comments throughout their membership.

Students are able to contact Clarice at any time via email or through the direct messaging features in the Amplify OT Membership platform. 

Students can also participate in our social groups and discussion forums with other students and practitioners!

Our courses do offer a certificate of completion that you can utilize for your professional development plans and potentially also for state licensure continuing education requirements. 

However, we cannot guarantee acceptance by your program, ACOTE, or other governing bodies. 

Yes! Of course we will do our best to ensure satisfaction with our programs. However, if it isn’t a good fit, we are able to offer a refund policy.

Programs who sign up on behalf of students are eligible to receive a 50% refund within the first 30 days of activation. Due to the administrative time and staff required to set up the program, we are unable to offer a 100% refund.

If the memberships are not yet activated, we can offer an 80% refund after the transaction has been completed. This is to account for processing fees and admin time needed.

For individual sign-ups, students have 14-days to request a refund. However, if any quizzes or courses have been completed, a refund will not be issued. The student must not have utilized the materials in any way to receive a refund. This is included in our Terms and Conditions and Refund and Returns Policy.
