Why should you become an occupational therapist (OT)?

Becoming an occupational therapist means that you can really make a difference. You will be able to forge professional relationships with patients who require therapy services and you can follow them on their rehabilitation journey. This is very much a person-driven role and so you can feel as though your treatment can have a real impact.

You will also be working with fellow occupational therapists who are also motivated to make an impact and so you will likely be able to find common interests and forge good working relationships.

What does occupational therapy involve?

Occupational therapy involves providing support to people in order to facilitate recovery and ensure that your patients can resume their normal lives – you will be helping them overcome the barriers that may be blocking their path.

You will take into account your patient’s mental, physical, social, and environmental health/needs and be able to help find solutions that are tailored specifically to them. Occupational therapy is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach and so you will be able to get creative with your methods.
