Tutor program

Our unique tutor program brings practicing occupational therapists into the classroom nearly every day. Instrumental in helping students develop both clinical judgment and practice skills, tutors are experienced occupational therapists who lead, facilitate and evaluate small student-groups,laboratory and tutorial sessions. These dedicated and dynamic individuals will help you to link your theoretical and academic learning to practical application and everyday practice through the experiential and reflective learning processes.
