Occupational therapy aims to promote the health and participation of people, organisations and populations through engagement in everyday activities or occupations.
This profession has well established research and evidence-based practice, which you will analyse and apply in this course.
Teaching for the Occupational Therapy programme from Flinders University is strongly connected to clinical settings in Southern Adelaide and has close links with health care providers to best prepare you for professional practice as an occupational therapist.
Emphasis is placed on preparing you to become a contemporary health professional who is able to work effectively across a range of settings, and in metropolitan or rural/remote locations.
Occupational therapists work in a variety of settings across public health, non-government organisations and private practice. Occupational therapists are in demand across the health sector and this outlook is projected to continue.
Potential employers include:
- state government departments such as health, disability and education
- non-government agencies
- private hospitals
- aged care providers
- private rehabilitation companies.
The Master of Occupational Therapy course has fulfilled the requirements for entry level education of occupational therapists and has been awarded the status of Accredited Occupational Therapy Course by Occupational Therapy Australia and the World Federation of Occupational Therapists.
