Occupational therapy training at undergraduate level
As the course coordinator and teacher on several of the courses on the Occupational Therapy Programme, I have had the opportunity to monitor student progress in the field of occupational therapy and also the development of the knowledge, skills and values that are of central importance and necessary for the professional practice of the occupational therapist.
For example, I find that a few years after having helped students in the form of supervision in base groups at undergraduate level, I come across them again in their capacity as professional occupational therapists supervising students in their work placement studies or else as employees or doctoral students.

– For me it's inspiring to know that I have shared my enthusiasm and given support and inspiration to others to enable them to provide good quality occupational therapy to patients and users, take part in work placement training for students, and forge their own careers through research and development as employees or doctoral students at the Department of Social and Welfare Studies, says Inger Lyngfelt Andreasson.
