About this course

Gaining a Master of Advanced Occupational Therapy can support occupational therapists to become expert practitioners in their chosen field of practice, to advance their careers, to develop professional leadership, or contribute to academic teaching. The Master of Advanced Occupational Therapy program enables Occupational Therapists to extend their specialist knowledge and skills for work with children, adults or older adults in a range of practice contexts, and to deepen their understanding of human occupation, theoretical frameworks and sources of evidence used to inform occupational therapy practice.
