Welcome Class of 2018!

Posted by Admin on November 24, 2016 in News

Teamwork was the theme of orientation as Dalhousie University School of Occupational Therapy welcomed 66 students as the class of 2018! Students were introduced to the profession with the help of local occupational therapists Scott Thieu, Chris McWilliam and Christy Taylor who,  by describing "a day in the life of an occupational therapist" in their respective roles in pediatrics, community mental health, and rehabilitation, highlighted the diverse opportunities that await our graduates. In addition to an orientation to the school and program, the Class of 2017 treated the incoming students to a warm welcome by hosting small groups of students in their homes for a "chicken dinner" and showcased the beauty of Halifax by joining them on a boat cruise of the harbour.

The future of the profession is in good hands as we launch our next cohort of colleagues!
