Let’s Connect – Linking OT Students & Practicing OTs During Covid-19
June 5 @ 8:00 am - June 26 @ 5:00 pmFree
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the University of Alberta Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine was unable to schedule field placements for occupational therapy students this term. OT students are dealing with many impacts of the “new normal” as they learn online and try to stay connected during these challenging times.
We want to help.
Registered Occupational Therapists
If you are a registered Occupational Therapist in Alberta and can spare 30 minutes of your time to connect with an OT student, you can make a difference! Register today and we will match you with an OT student with an interest in your practice area. Students have many questions and could benefit from your support and encouragement. Once you have been matched, you can both choose to connect by telephone, video conference or other practical means on a day and time that works for you.
If you are a first or second year OT student attending the University of Alberta, you can register here to be matched with a registered OT practicing in Alberta. Once matched, you can connect for 30 minutes to get some questions answered and learn more about the area of practice you have chosen.
