Welcome to the Occupational Rehabilitation Program within the School Rehabilitation Sciences
Welcome to the McMaster University Occupational Therapy program. Occupational therapy is a health profession whose members collaborate in enabling occupation with clients who may be individuals, groups or organizations. Occupational therapy has developed theories and models for professional practice, which are supported by clearly articulated values and beliefs. Client-centred practice is central to practice. All people have the potential to think and act as participants in their lives. Therefore, to be client-centred, occupational therapists recognize that people are active participants in therapy rather than patients who are being treated.
The McMaster Occupational Therapy program follows a similar path in preparing students to become competent occupational therapy practitioners, learning within a self-directed, problem-based educational environment.
