Baum, Carolyn M., PhD, OTR, FAOTA

Clinical Interests

Aging, occupational performance assessment, program development using a Person-Environment-Occupational Performance (PEOP) model

Research Interests

Dr. Baum’s research focuses on the role of cognition in everyday life and the enabling of everyday performance in people with chronic health conditions and disability.

Teaching Roles

Dr. Baum teaches Theory and Foundations for Occupational Therapy Practice for the entry level MSOT and OTD program (OT5023); OT Practice Seminar I (OT760A) and OT Practice Seminar II (OT760B) in the OTD program and Theory and Classification (MO1650) in the Rehabilitation and Participation Science (RAPS) PhD program. Additionally, Dr. Baum mentors students who work in her laboratory.

Education

1993: PhD in social work, Washington University in St. Louis
1979: MA in health management, Webster University
1965: BS in occupational therapy, University of Kansas

Background

Dr. Baum served in clinical roles at the University of Kansas Medical Center and Research Medical Center (Health Midwest) in Kansas City until 1976 when she joined the faculty at Washington University School of Medicine as the director of occupational therapy clinical services at the Irene Walter Johnson Institute of Rehabilitation. In 1979, she began working with Dr. Leonard Berg as a part of the Memory and Aging Project. That work, and his guidance, triggered a scholarly career and framed her doctoral work. In 1988, she was appointed director of the Program in Occupational Therapy. Dr. Baum has been involved in two major rehabilitation policy initiatives. She served on the National Institutes of Health committee that wrote the rehabilitation plan for Congress that implemented the National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research, and she served on the Institute of Medicine committee that wrote the report “Enabling America” for Congress, which subsequently was published as a book. She has served many roles in state and national occupational therapy organizations. She has twice been president of the American Occupational Therapy Association (1981-82, 2003-2007), president of the American Occupational Therapy Certification Board, now NBCOT (1986-1992), on the Research Advisory Panel and now she chairs the Research Commission for the American Occupational Therapy Foundation.
