OSOT - Am I Ready for a Student? Becoming an OT Preceptor
Anne Hunt, PhD, OT Reg. (Ont.) and Naomi Davids-Brumer, OT Reg. (Ont.)
This session will be of interest to occupational therapists who have thought about taking on a student but aren’t sure how it might fit into their practice. Providing preceptorship is one way that occupational therapists can demonstrate that they “Contribute to the learning of occupational therapists and others”, one of the ‘Professional Responsibilities’ included in the new Core Competencies for Occupational Therapists in Canada.
Participants will learn about unique ways that private practitioners and others can incorporate students into their practice through creative opportunities. Benefits of hosting students include introduction of new ideas, development of supervision skills, support with workload, better connection to the profession and university, introducing students to new practice areas and more. By the end of the session, participants will have a plan for how they might consider precepting an occupational therapy student in their practice.
12pm-1pm EST. Complimentary for OSOT members. $25 +HST for non-members.
