Occupational Therapists help give people their independence back as they assist and encourage them to overcome physical difficulties. They plan and direct therapy treatment, help with daily tasks, adapt equipment and housing for easier use, educate family, help set realistic goals and provide the support needed to reach them. For a patient with physical difficulties, even one small step inspires a sense of achievement.
Study will combine theoretical knowledge with hands-on learning in real healthcare environments. Students will have the chance to care for their own patients and learn about the industry through putting classroom learning into practice.
