On July 1, 2006, The University of Toledo (UT) and the Medical University of Ohio merged to form one comprehensive University of Toledo. UT includes Main Campus on Bancroft Street and the Health Science Campus on Arlington Avenue. UT's Main Campus is home to the College of Health Sciences (CHS). The Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and other CHS departments are located in the Health and Human Services Building. The 160,000 square-foot structure houses three CHS departments along with 15 mediated classrooms using technology and multiple specialty research laboratories. The wireless building provides an environment that enhances teaching, faculty/student interaction, services for the community, and research data collection. The occupational therapy classrooms and laboratories have been custom designed to offer students hands-on learning opportunities and access to high-tech research equipment. The occupational therapy program at UT is among only 160 such programs in the United States. U.S. News and World Report currently ranks UT's OT program among the top 25 percent of occupational therapy programs.
