Occupational Therapy (MOT)

Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Medicine
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Occupational Therapy/Therapist
Description Occupational therapists provide specialized rehabilitation services to maintain, restore or improve the ability of children and adults to perform the occupations of daily life, which may be impaired as a result of illness, injury, congenital or acquired disabilities, or social disadvantage. Occupational therapists focus on adapting the environment or improving the person’s skills, to enhance performance in the areas of self care (eating, dressing, personal hygiene), productivity (household work, employment, school), and leisure activities, thereby improving overall health and quality of life. The Master of Occupational Therapy degree provides the professional education necessary to obtain a license to practice occupational therapy. It differs from the advanced or research master’s degree which prepares practitioners with advanced research skills and requires completion and defense of a thesis.
