Occupational Therapy first had a presence in Indiana University's Long Hospital in 1922. An occupational therapy department for children was formed in the Riley Hospital in 1924 with the arrival of Winifred Conrick Kahmann. Prior to the establishment of a baccalaureate degree program in 1958 the department provided clinical training for occupational therapy graduates from other institutions. Graduate programs in O.T. were established in subsequent years.
