Pediatrics is the most popular choice with students, according to Dr. Jane Bear-Lehman, chairwoman of the department of occupational therapy at NYU Steinhardt.
The school's two-and-a-half-year graduate program has flourished, with the number of applications up by 33 percent in the last year. One reason is the school's 100 percent employment rate, a trend that has led OTs to describe their profession as "recession proof."
The school's students, Dr. Bear-Lehman said, come from diverse backgrounds such as teaching, finance and fashion, driven away by bleak prospects in their fields.

To make matters more complicated, inflammation can change from day to day depending on a person's work schedule, meaning that an injury may not be detectable at certain times, she said: "Because of the kind of disease it is, it may not hurt today, but it hurts tomorrow."
