Professional Elective - General (OCCP4086)


This unit of study will present a topic for a professional elective that allows students to explore an area of occupational therapy practice in depth. The specific topic will be determined from time to time as teaching staff, visiting scholars and resources are available. The unit will extend the learning students have achieved in the topic in the first three years of the course requiring an increase in the depth of student understanding in the topic area than that required in earlier parts of the course.
