Expansion of OT Training Programs in BC
With a growing demand for occupational therapists in urban and rural areas of British Columbia, OT Works! is thrilled with the recent announcement by the Government of BC and the University of British Columbia to expand occupational therapy programs. UBC hosts the only OT school in BC and many of our OTs are alumni of their Master’s program. UBC will add an occupational therapy program in northern B.C. in partnership with the University of Northern British Columbia, with its first intake starting September 2022. The OT program at UBC-Vancouver also plans to add 8 seats to its program in the coming years.
OT Works! looks forward to working with more UBC and UNBC grads in the future. Together, we can improve the health and wellness of our local communities.
