Pi Theta Eplison

Pi Theta Eplison (PTE) is a national honor society for occupational therapy students and alumni. PTE recognizes and fosters leadership and scholarship among its members. To be eligible, a student must have achieved second semester junior status, be in the top 35 percent of their class, and have maintained a GPA of 3.5 since entering the occupational therapy program.

PTE provides its members with an opportunity to engage in research, leadership roles, and projects to service the Xavier community as well as the Cincinnati community.

PTE helps to recognize and prepare the future scholars and leaders of our profession.
