Subject outline

In this eight-week full-time placement students will consolidate and enhance their skills at beginning practitioner level. Students will review their learning needs upon considering previous practice experiences, interests and future goals. Students will formulate their needs into a learning contract that will be reviewed/revised with the Professional Practice Educator at placement. The placement provides the opportunity to further develop, integrate or enhance clinical/professional skills with the supervision of an occupational therapist, prior to graduation. Professional accreditation requires a minimum of 1000 hours of clinical exposure. Students attendance at professional placements will contribute to meeting this requirement for professional recognition as anoccupational therapist.
