BSc (Hons) in Occupational Therapy 職業治療學(榮譽)理學士學位

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Short Description

This programme nurtures students to be forward-looking, competent occupational therapists who can promote health and well-being of people in Hong Kong.

A combination of medical, psychological and social science subjects prepares students to enhance the functional performance of community-dwelling people with disabilities in terms of self-care, leisure and work. Students learn how to minimise the effects of disabilities, promote health and improve the quality of life of clients and their families.

The programme prepares students to deliver client-centred occupational therapy with a commitment to promoting equal opportunities for all members of the community. It also prepares them for helping careers in which they will empower clients to manage their disabilities, educate the public about healthy and meaningful living and pass down their knowledge to new generations of therapists.
