Curtin University Occupational Therapy School Graduate Entry



Curtin University Master of Occupational Therapy Overview

Currently there is a worldwide shortage of occupational therapists. With our aging population, people living with chronic conditions, high levels of injury and the need for early interventions with children at risk of developmental delays, there is every reason to believe that this demand for occupational therapists will remain high.

The Curtin University graduate entry Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) course in Australia offers students a fast-track option to becoming an occupational therapist. Curtin Occupational Therapy students will develop knowledge of four broad areas:

  1. Medical, psychiatric, orthopaedic and neurological conditions which affect the health and well-being of individuals.
  2. The theory and practice of occupational therapy including the study of occupation and analysis of the physical, psychological and social requirements of a variety of skills and activities.
  3. Human development covering normal growth and development within the life cycle along with problems which occur such as learning disabilities and the effects of aging.
  4. Occupational health and management, including prevention, education and rehabilitation programs for a variety of workplaces.
