Placements (VFU) facilitates the development of professional skills in the student’s future professional role as an occupational therapist. As a clinical lecturer, I am the bridge between the Occupational Therapy Programme and Region Östergötland.

I teach student occupational therapists

I am a registered occupational therapist with a degree from Linköping University.

Since graduating in 2002, I have worked in neurological rehabilitation in both inpatient and outpatient care.

Since the autumn term of 2013, I have been covering 50% of the teaching hours on the Occupational Therapy Programme.

I also spend 50 percent of my working hours at Region Östergötland, addressing matters linked to placements (VFU) and supervision for all medium-length care study programmes at the Faculty of Medicine.

Master of Science in Occupational Therapy

I have a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy. My degree project, “The effects of early and recurrent stroke rehabilitation in outpatient care", was done in conjunction with my clinical work.
