Prepare the Future of the Profession to Advocate for OT and Navigate the US Healthcare System with Confidence

Save hours of your time and feel good knowing you’re providing students with the resources they need to be successful in fieldwork and in our healthcare system. 

Somehow Congress even seems to move faster than the average textbook. 

That’s why when it comes to teaching policy, you want something more dynamic that can be updated in an instant. 

Using a web-based resource allows for that dynamic flexibility. I send out consistent emails and updates in our platform to make sure your students have the latest information.

What happens in DC… doesn’t stay in DC.

We know that policy impacts our profession in a HUGE way and that if we don’t learn how to navigate the US healthcare system… we may choose to leave it.

By giving students an understanding of policy and reimbursement, we give them a map for how to navigate difficult clinical scenarios, patient advocacy, and how to investigate new areas of practice or entrepreneurship.

The long and short of it is that advocacy and policy are essential, but staying up to date on them and making the content engaging is challenging.

Here’s what your students can expect to learn with Amplify OT:

  • Insurance terms and Medicare types
  • Government agencies impacting healthcare
  • How to pass a bill
  • How OT services are paid for in adult rehab settings
  • How to find information on Medicare sites, AOTA, and using search engines
  • Current legislation and advocacy initiatives at the federal and state level
  • and more!

You shouldn’t have to be up until midnight the night before a class looking for information on Medicare’s new policy (and then losing it again). 

Let Amplify OT help you and your students with our innovative and consistently updated resources. 

How do we do that? Well… let me show you! ⬇️


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 20 video lessons you can incorporate into your program.

Plus, they gain access to Clarice – an OT, the founder of Amplify OT, and a Medicare specialist. Think of me like your adjunct professor to go! Here to support you and your students!

You don’t have to try and figure out what Medicare covers on your own…  With Mastering OT Policy and Medicare™ you’re getting policy knowledge tailored to occupational therapy.

Wave goodbye to crossing our fingers and hoping information translates to OT or telling students to skip portions of a textbook that are so out of date it’s criminal. 👋

Together, we can help students enter the field prepared to advocate for the profession, their patients, and themselves.

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 OT, I really struggled to advocate for my services and understand Medicare policies which meant I lost money and my patients didn’t get the care they needed. 

I hated how I had to always search for a policy with “physical therapy” to try and find something that maybe applied to OT. 

This frustration led me to create Amplify OT and start empowering others to use policy to work for them in our changing healthcare system. reading a foreign language. 

 Policy is my passion and I want to bring that passion to your cohort. 

As seen on…

Whenever I look for updated resources I end up losing hours down a rabbit hole…

Navigating government websites is not for the faint of heart… 

I saved all my favorite resources and put them into handouts associated with the Mastering OT Policy and Medicare lessons.

This program isn’t just for your students, it’s also for you. Each of my courses can save you hours of research because I’ve already done the work of reading the policy, translating it for OT, putting it into videos, AND including all of my sources and information in comprehensive downloadable handouts.

So no more wasting hours looking for information… simply watch one of our lessons, review the handout, and update your slides in minutes. And don’t forget to assign our lesson to students to go with your class topics. 

This semester you can give yourself and your students the gift of access to 23 lessons (in the Mastering OT Policy and Medicare Course alone), complete with handouts and resources that link directly from the source.

Ok… I’m starting to imagine my students using this resource… but what does it look like in reality?

Picture this… you assign your students a couple of videos to watch before their next lecture and have them take the associated quiz to assess learning.

This quiz is auto-grading so they just need to send you the PDF of their certificate to verify learning. Or you can download the info yourself in our easy-to-access student reports.

Here’s how other OT and OTA program use Amplify OT Resources:

  • Required ‘reading’ to complete before the next lesson
  • Assign the video lessons associated with the student’s fieldwork settings
  • Preparation for state of federal advocacy day
  • Preparation for Level 1 and Level 2 fieldworks
  • Video material to decrease in-class time to support flexible schedules
  • Provide more comprehensive coverage of topics that class time just doesn’t allow for

You’ve got a lot of material to cover… so instead of partially covering a topic and hoping for the best, you can refer students to our comprehensive lessons and resources for continued learning. 

This is the continuously updated textbook that fits in your pocket

Here’s a quick behind-the-scenes look at the platform students will use to access the Amplify OT lessons on our membership platform.

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.

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 which can often be a few hundred dollars.

For individual sign-ups, students have 30-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.
