In first and second year you'll study the fundamentals of anatomy, interprofessional practice, health research and the determinants of health. You will also study two electives in any subject area, from humanities and languages to business and education. In third and fourth year, you'll focus on occupational therapy subjects, in particular the specialised therapy needs of children, youth, adults and older adults.
