Only available to Occupational Therapy Accelerated Program Students.
This subject will provide a minimum of 190 hours (five weeks at 38 hours/week) of
supervised clinical placement with flexible support from the University as an alternate
practice education subject to OT3005, for students completing an accelerated course
or an alternate progression through the course. This subject should be completed in
conjunction with OT4006 practice education requirements. The focus of this subject
is to integrate previous academic material with clinical experience, with new observational
and practical clinical education. The placement will be either rural or urban and
will enable the student to apply, utilise and develop the theories and principles
of occupational therapy in a variety of settings. Students may be required to undertake
placements in a facility away from the campus at which they are currently enrolled,
at their own expense.

therapy for assessing the clients health or disability status;
- ability to integrate a range of OT intervention techniques within client centred practice
and apply evidence-based practice and clinical reasoning skills relevant to OT within
the placement setting.
