What’s it like to be an…Occupational Therapist?
My job title is: Occupational Therapist
What does a normal day look like? Is it consistent throughout the year? If you’ve had this position for a while, how have things changed?
A normal day as a staff therapist consists of evaluating and treating patients. This is consistent throughout the year. Things have changed in health care and time spent with each patient has become much less in the clinic. There is a greater focus on home exercise programming and the role of the therapist is as much that of an educator of disease and treatment as it is a therapist.
