Applications are now open for our Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) program. In addition to the program being taught, as usual, at UBC’s Point Grey Vancouver campus, we are also launching the new northern program at UNBC in Prince George.
Students in both the MOT-Vancouver and MOT-North programs will be taught by the same instructors and interact in real-time, with clinical skills assistants present in labs at both campuses to facilitate learning and clinical skills development.
Clinical learning sites vary each year, but the majority of placements focus on critical sites within the Northern Health Authority, or in small towns away from urban centres.
MOT-North broadens the reach of training for future occupational therapists, who remain in demand in the province.
The first year will see 20 seats available for the MOT-North class (compared to the 60-seat Vancouver program), and we hope to see this number increase in the future.
This launch forms part of our wider expansion of the program across locations in BC.
