Occupational therapy programs are professional masters level entry programs that are two years in length. In addition to research and academic courses, occupational therapists are placed in different clinical environments for practical education of a thousand hours. After finishing the program, they must write an exam to register with their professional college.
The College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario is a regulatory body that ensures occupational therapists practice safely and competently. OTs are expected to engage in lifelong learning through organized courses, literature review and peer mentorship. They must also set annual learning goals with the College of Occupational Therapists of Ontario, which are evaluated on an ongoing basis through voluntary reporting and audit.
This group of health care providers currently is trained at a
college certificate level.
Student occupational therapists work under the supervision of a registered occupational therapist. As a teaching hospital, we provide ongoing opportunities for students to participate in fieldwork placements, clinical visits, labs and research. We have also participated in providing fieldwork experiences for both internationally trained occupational therapists and occupational therapy students.
