Steven Rankin, OTR/L, has 20 years of experience as an acute care occupational therapist in an academic medical center, level 1 trauma and regional burn center, with a primary focus on trauma care. He left a career in the construction industry due to injury, which as provided him with a unique insight as a patient. After many years of seeing continuing education available in specific content areas but not finding a comprehensive trauma course, he decided to create one himself. He has since trained physical and occupational therapy staff, Speech-Language Pathologists, Nurse Practitioners, and Medical Doctors in the treatment of traumatic injuries. Mr. Rankin is a regular guest lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in acute care.
