About the Bond occupational therapy program

Learn more about studying OT at Bond University

The Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine at Bond University is recognised for the excellence of its education and research in the medical, health and sports sciences. Bond offers the two-year graduate-entry Master of Occupational Therapy, which is designed to produce highly competitive graduates with comprehensive clinical skills as well as solid business acumen and research experience.

It is the first occupational therapy master’s in Australia to offer you the opportunity to complete a clinical research project or undertake business electives in preparation for a career in private practice. You will engage in research training before specialising in one of two elective pathways:

  • Clinically-focused Research Pathway – the clinically focused research pathway culminates in an individual research project that may be eligible for publication. This pathway prepares you for entry into higher research degrees and careers in research and academia, as well as bolstering research networks; or
  • Business-focused Research Pathway – enables you to undertake business electives that will enable you to undertake management roles, and better prepare you to work in the growing private sector. The pathway culminates in an industry research project where you will apply both research and business skills.

You will be taught by academics and industry staff who are current practicing clinicians with up-to-date industry knowledge.

Sydney Master of Occupational Therapy students gain practical experience on placement

A group of Master of Occupational Therapy students recently completed an eight-week placement in Broken Hill, a mining town in the the New South Wales outback.

The students worked with local children as part of the placement experience required for the two-year graduate entry master’s program.

Lydia Tu, who took part in the placement, said that being a part of a program that makes a difference in children’s lives is an experience she’ll never forget.

“Often children in Broken Hill can have developmental delays because of factors like exposure to lead in their environment. When this is coupled with a shortage in the health workforce, it can be very difficult for these children. It was great to work with the children and see immense improvements in them at the end of the program.”

“Fieldwork provides hands on experience with real clients in a supervised environment allowing students to combine academic study with the practical abilities required of the occupational therapy profession,” said Dr Merrolee Penman, Senior Lecturer of Workplace Integrated Learning at the Faculty of Health Sciences.

“The best part of the placement experience was working with the children,” said, Sharon Yi Heng. “It’s great to be able to watch the children develop the skills required for school performance, achieve their goals, and grow in confidence. It was such an amazing feeling and very rewarding.”

The focus on peer supervision throughout the placement period encouraged leadership skills and the opportunity to put their learning into practice in real-world situations.

“One of the most valuable experiences I had was the peer supervision. We had lots of autonomy, meaning we had to be very independent in making clinical decisions. I definitely learned how to think on my feet and be flexible in my therapy session plans,” said Sharon.

Occupational therapists work with their clients to overcome barriers that may be preventing them from participating more fully in life. This might involve teaching alternative techniques to achieve a given task, or facilitating improvement of skills. Occupational therapists collaborate with family and carers where needed, and typically work in teams with other health professionals.

“I had the opportunity to practice my clinical reasoning, and develop my own style of practice and approach which is really great,” said Lydia. “I have definitely gained some paediatric skills which include understanding some of the underlying factors that contribute to difficulties with handwriting, how to be creative and make things interesting to engage children, and how to communicate and be firm with children when needed.”

University of Sydney Master of Occupational Therapy

The Sydney Master of Occupational Therapy is very popular among Canadian students. During this two-year degree, you will cover a wide range of topics including theories of what people do in daily life and why; knowledge of the development of human capabilities (e.g., cognitive, motor, psychosocial) and the ways in which injury and illness typically disrupt them; activity and environmental analysis; and theories and techniques for promoting participation in daily life. As part of your studies, you will complete more 1,000 hours of clinical placements, providing the opportunity to apply your knowledge and gain hands-on experience with real clients.

Program: Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT)
Location: Lidcombe, (suburb of Sydney), New South Wales
Semester intake: March
Duration: 2 years
Application deadline: TBA. For the 2017 intake, the application deadline was September 30, 2016.

Congratulations to our OzTREKK Community Leaders Scholarship winners!

Congratulations to our three 2016 OzTREKK Community Leaders Scholarship winners:

University of Sydney Occupational Therapy School

Sharon Yeung is headed to Sydney OT School

Jannelle Chisholm, Bond University, Juris Doctor
Sharon Yeung, University of Sydney, Master of Occupational Therapy
Barinder Khehra, University of Sydney, Doctor of Medicine

If you missed it, we announced our winners December 16, 2016 via our Facebook page!

The OzTREKK Community Leaders Scholarships were created to assist students who have demonstrated leadership, compassion, and innovation in their communities. What we didn’t realise is that so many of you are so incredible! The task of choosing the top three was extremely difficult, but this is how we did it:

Bond University Law School

Future Bond JD student Jannelle Chisholm

Students were evaluated on their written letters and videos. It took approximately two months for our scholarship committee to review all applications. Many submissions had to be read/watched multiple times in order to absorb just how much some of the applicants had accomplished! In an office email, OzTREKK Director Jaime Notman commented that “there were a few jaw-dropping moments for me (where I read, re-read and re-read—again—to see if I was mistaken).”

The committee was truly blown away by the calibre of the applications! Such a of variety of community involvement, both on a local and a global scale, and there were certainly some applications that broke office silence—either with a laugh or a cheerful “wow!”

We also have to give a shout-out to the singers, the attempts at Aussie accents, and the didgeridoo players!

So what kind of community involvement did we see? A lot. Here are just a few examples:

  • CLOUD project, part of The NWC – Sustainable Travel for Impact and Community Development Projects in Dominican Republic, Haiti, Uganda, Kenya, Guyana
  • FITFAM – a health and fitness program to help encourage, educate and empower participants to live healthier lives, including weekly boot-camp class, nutrition challenges, health and wellness seminars, and sponsored 5K events.
  • Leader of a mobility fundraiser for wheelchairs delivered to Peru
  • Make Way For Me! Occupational Therapy for Children and Youth – Assisted in the creation, planning, and management as a Skill Development Summer Program, where program facilitators provided intensive services to address areas such as anxiety reduction, emotional regulation, social skills, printing development, and gross motor skills such as riding a bike.
  • President of the Caribbean Students Association – Raised awareness for the struggle of cultural integration, orchestrated events to raise money to donate to Haiti relief groups and donated backpacks to an elementary school in Saint Lucia.
University of Sydney Doctor of Medicine

Barinder Khehra will be studying medicine at Sydney Uni

The group evaluation was tough—the applications showed so much passion and purpose, we wanted to share the scholarship love with everyone! We watched many of the videos repeatedly, combed through written applications, and spent hours discussing and finally selecting the three winners.

It is difficult for the committee to express the appreciation we have for all of our applicants’ efforts. We understand many had likely taken weeks to plan and create their applications, and we want everyone to know we absorbed every detail.

Congratulations again, Barinder, Sharon, and Jannelle! OzTREKK is so proud of what you have accomplished thus far and we are excited to see the positive waves you’ll continue to make within your communities, even Down Under!

*

Best wishes to all our OzTREKK students—we know you’ll make a difference!

Sydney OT students work with remote Aboriginal communities

Four students from the Sydney Faculty of Health Sciences have embarked on an opportunity to work with Aboriginal communities in the state’s far west.

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed between the university and the Murdi Paaki Region Assembly (MPRA) in far west New South Wales which will see the Master of Occupational Therapy students develop innovative aged care service models for remote communities in the region.

“Traditional models of aged care service delivery have had limited success within these communities,” said Master of Occupational Therapy student Rachel Brunker. “We need to find a feasible way to utilise and develop local services to allow elders to age on country and not be sent far from their families and community,” she said.

Rebecca Lebler, who is in her final year of the Sydney OT program, said occupational therapy is based on the foundation of person-centred practice.

“We are in an ideal position to identify the expectations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Murdi Paaki communities in regards to culturally safe and accessible health services,” she said.

In August, the University of Sydney announced an ambitious service learning program offering students opportunities to engage in meaningful community service while applying the experience to their academic and personal development.

Through the program, local community leaders inform the university of the issues that they would like support in managing. Students are then engaged on working on these issues with the communities.

Mr Sam Jeffries, Chairperson, Murdi Paaki Regional Assembly said, “This is a unique opportunity available to us. We are happy to partner with Australia’s oldest university to deliver real gains for Aboriginal people in the state’s far west.”

Arriving in Bourke, Michelle Packham said the role in the first phase of the project will be to develop strong relationships with the community. “We want to ensure a long-lasting collaborative relationship between the University of Sydney and the Murdi Paaki communities,” she said.

Students Rebecca Lebler, Rachel Brunker, Michelle Packham and Janielle Jondral will be joined by students from the Faculty of Engineering and IT who will work on producing alternative energy solutions for remote communities.

Sydney Master of Occupational Therapy

The Sydney OT program offers a two-year, graduate-entry program. It is intended for students coming from an undergraduate degree in any field who wish to gain the requirements to become an occupational therapist. As the course leads to eligibility to practice, students will be assisted in achieving prescribed professional competencies through practical and theoretical skill acquisition and clinical fieldwork placements. Clinical placements are undertaken in both the public and private sectors. Students will have the opportunity to develop an understanding of the career path they have chosen, and its place in contemporary health.

Program: Master of Occupational Therapy
Location: Lidcombe, (suburb of Sydney), New South Wales
Semester intake: March each year
Duration: 2 years

Industry experts join Bond University Occupational Therapy program

The Bond University Master of Occupational Therapy (OT) program has added new members to its ranks, with the appointment of several key staff members: Assistant Professor Tawanda Machingura, Assistant Professor Sally Fields and Assistant Professor Michelle Fair.

Industry experts join Bond University Occupational Therapy program

Bond’s Head of Program, Professor Susan Brandis, warmly welcomed the new additions.

“I am incredibly grateful that these impressive individuals, who make significant contributions to specialised areas of OT, are joining us at Bond,” she said.

“Occupational therapy is in growing demand over recent years. This is not only in response to the ageing population, but increasing demands for a health workforce who can deliver specialised health services.

“I look forward to our team sharing their unique gifts and talents with the next generation of occupational therapists.”

Prior to Bond University, Assistant Professor Tawanda Machingura was the Assistant Director Occupational Therapist, Mental Health, for Gold Coast Hospital and Health Service.  A highly experienced OT, Tawanda has extensive skills in assessments, modifications, medico-legal services, mental health and rehabilitation.

“I’m excited to bring Tawanda onto the staff, his specific expertise in mental health is of valuable contribution to the program,” Professor Brandis said.

“Tawanda is also completing a PhD topic on the effectiveness of sensory modulation therapy in people with schizophrenia, and we look forward to him sharing his experiences with our new OT students.”

Assistant Professor Sally Fields comes to Bond as an Advanced Occupational Therapist, working with the Transition Care program at Gold Coast Hospital and Health Service.  Sally holds a Masters degree in Clinical Rehabilitation, and is focused on the area of aged care and rehabilitation.  She is also an active researcher, currently undertaking a PhD in ‘Driver Assessment Competencies’ using a mixed method approach.

Assistant Professor Michelle Fair has more than 20 years’ experience in occupational therapy and runs a successful private practice providing services in workplace rehabilitation, environmental modification and organisational health.

“Michelle has also worked in senior leadership roles, and her MBA majoring in Occupational Health and Safety provides her with a unique view for occupational therapy in the workplace,” said Professor Brandis.

“Her approach considers both organisational needs and those of the injured or ill worker, and providing sustainable outcomes to restrict or prevent the cycle of injury and illness.  This area of expertise is incredibly important in OT, as a lot of insurance companies and organisations place significant focus on return to work outcomes.”

The new team joins existing staff member, Associate Professor Kieran Broome who has a PhD in community access and currently works in chronic disease.

The Master of Occupational Therapy program is graduate-entry and commences in September 2016.  It is headed by the highly-experienced Professor Susan Brandis, who joined Bond after 15 years in senior management at Queensland Health including as the inaugural Director of Research for Gold Coast Hospital and Health Service.

Prof Brandis appointed head of new Bond occupational therapy program

Bond University has expanded its health and medicine faculty, with the launch of a Master of Occupational Therapy aimed at filling the shortage for one of Australia’s fastest-growing health professions.

The new occupational therapy program will be headed by highly experienced health administrator, practitioner and researcher, Professor Susan Brandis.

Prof Brandis appointed head of new Bond occupational therapy program

Bond University will accept its first intake of students in September 2016, with the master’s taking just two years full time to complete, through its unique accelerated three-semesters-a-year program.

The private Gold Coast university becomes just the second university in Queensland to offer occupational therapy as a postgraduate qualification, with the new program to focus on practical on-the-job skills, together with business acumen and research.

Prof Brandis joins Bond University after 15 years in senior management at Queensland Health, including as the inaugural Director of Research for Gold Coast Hospital and Health Service.

During a 37-year career, she has held high-profile positions including Manager of the National Falls Prevention Project for the Commonwealth and Executive Director of Allied Health at Gold Coast Health.

She has also worked in various roles in both the public and non-government sectors including Director of Occupational Therapy; Director of Allied Health, Geriatric and Rehabilitation Services; and Executive Officer Medical Aids Subsidy Scheme, and has been an adjunct lecturer at various universities in Queensland over almost two decades.

Her clinical interests include aged care, rehabilitation and palliative care, and she is involved in research projects looking at patient safety and quality, organisational culture and patient outcomes.

Professor Brandis said occupational therapy was a fast-growing area and the need for the profession would only continue to grow.

“There is increasing demand in the community for quality of care and the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme has further bolstered the need for occupational therapists,” she said.

“The future is really bright for occupational therapy as a profession and there is huge potential in terms of research and how we better promote the independence of people living in the community.

“It is also a career for life.  It is a profession where you can make a real difference to people’s lives and there are so many different careers you can pursue, with the broad nature of the program ensuring opportunities to diversify into a range of management and leadership roles.”

Professor Brandis said Bond University’s Master of Occupational Therapy was structured to meet both World Federation and National Occupational Therapy standards, meeting the requirements for direct registration with Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

“The new program will include more than 1,000 clinical hours, ensuring our graduates have extensive hands-on experience upon graduation, which goes hand-in-hand with the intensive one-on-one support and mentorship they receive through Bond’s small class sizes,” she said.

Bond University Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine Dean, Professor Helen Chenery, said the introduction of the Master of Occupational Therapy would add to the university’s existing extensive health and medical offering.

Bond University already boasts a diverse range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses including medicine, biomedical science, physiotherapy, health science, nutrition and dietetics and a number of programs in sport and exercise science and sports management.

“The new program complements the suite of health and medical programs already on offer at Bond University and offers more opportunities for interdisciplinary education and interprofessional practice,” said Professor Chenery.

“To provide occupational therapy alongside our very reputable medicine, physiotherapy, nutrition and dietetics and psychology programs, to name just a few, is of real benefit for students and provides a strong foundation for the new program.

“We welcome Professor Brandis to our expanding health and medical team and are confident her extensive and diverse experience will ensure we deliver a world-class occupational therapy program at Bond University.”
