What do we do?

Welcome to the Bournemouth University Occupational Therapy Society!

Our aim is to improve the awareness of OT and it ethos by offering peer support to students and CPD learning opportunities. As as society we intend to organize internal talks from lecturers about research/clinical practice, and for students to share there experience.

We intend to organize external speakers from service users, practitioners and previous students to come in and talk about there lived experiences with a condition and practice experience.

We plan to organize as many OT events and networking opportunities as possible through out the academic year.

Plus we aim to create links with the other university with Occupational Therapy Society's in the south east/west region such as Southampton, UWE Bristol, Brunel, Brighton and Oxford Brooks.

This is your OT society so let us know what you want from us this year!
