Advanced Rural or Urban Practice (NHPOT4007)

The focus of this course will be on the student developing a higher level of professional skills and competencies, and further advancing their professional reasoning skills and reflective practices through the integration of practical and theoretical course components. This course will provide students with an opportunity to further integrate their learning gained from previous practice education. Students will complete a minimum of 380 hours which includes a 10 week supervised practice education placement with flexible support from the university. The placement will be either rural or urban and will enable the student to advance their ability to apply, develop, analyse and integrate the theories, principles and practice of occupational therapy in a variety of settings. Students may be required to undertake placements in a facility away from the campus at which they are currently enrolled, at their own expense.
