The Occupational Therapy program of University of Toronto emphasizes the application of theory and research evidence to clinical practice through rigorous studies in occupational therapy and research production and utilization.
Graduates are eligible to write the certification examination of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists, a requirement for registration with the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario and most other professional regulatory colleges in Canada. Practice in another country generally requires the graduate to pass the licensing requirement specific to that country. Graduates are eligible to:
- practise independently in a variety of roles, such as consultants and case managers, and in a range of settings, such as acute care, interdisciplinary programs, private practice, and primary health care;
- supervise rehabilitation assistants, OT aides, or other support workers;
- use principles of research-based practice to guide and evaluate service delivery;
- contribute to research that will advance the knowledge base of the discipline;
- assume management roles;
- take leadership roles in the profession;
- take leadership roles in health care and other sectors including social services, education, and labour;
- fill academic-practitioner positions; and
- pursue doctoral studies and careers in academia or clinical research.
