Occupational Therapy


Please log in to join this organisation.

The OT society is run by students and is open to all students with an interest in occupational therapy including other healthcare professions as all of our knowledge and practice is only enhanced by such interprofessional collaboration.

What is occupational therapy?

Occupational therapy is a healthcare profession that provides support to people of all ages whose health due to illness, ageing or accident, prevents them doing tasks, activities and occupations that matter to them (NHS Choices 2015; RCOT 2017).

The OT society helps to celebrate and promote the profession and hosts a range of learning opportunities to help boost your professional development and continuing professional development portfolio whether you are a current student or alumni. We also hold social activities, so you can meet with others across all year groups put promote learning at all stages of your development and networking opportunities post graduation.
