Field of Study: Occupational Therapy/Therapist
Description Occupational therapy is a dynamic, growing, and internationally-recognized health profession that for close to a century has been helping to improve the lives and daily experience of children, adults, and communities by focusing on what is fundamental to us all - the daily occupations that give life meaning. As humans we engage in occupation to be productive, to learn, to recreate, and to take care of our most basic needs. Occupation is what gives purpose to our daily lives and connects us to our communities. Occupational therapists are specialists in the use of occupation to prevent disability, restore health, and ensure that all individuals and populations, regardless of health status, can experience full and meaningful lives. Here at Queen's University, we are pleased to offer a graduate level educational program that prepares students to become experts in enabling occupation and leaders in occupational therapy within broadening, complex and ever-changing health care environments. This program is designed to prepare you for entry-level practice as an Occupational Therapist. The MScOT Program is 24 months in duration. To be eligible for admission, applicants must hold a four-year baccalaureate degree or equivalent with a minimum second- class standing from a recognized university.
