Occupational Therapists evaluate and identify barriers to people participating in the activities that matter to them. They then work with people to improve their skills and abilities, change the way they do an activity, or modify their environment, to help them live their best lives. This helps contribute to their overall psychological and physical wellbeing.
Occupational Therapy graduates are employed within both public and private healthcare providers and work with people of all ages.
Studying occupational therapy in rural and remote areas offers you the opportunity to study where you live, work and play without having to Adelaide. The degrees has been designed with a rural focus and offers industry-led topics that prepare students for working in a wide range of settings. There is a strong focus on working in in culturally responsive ways particularly with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
