Overview

Rehabilitation of patients with neurological conditions can present
unique challenges even for experienced occupational therapists. This
specialist qualification will give you the best possible understanding
of their needs.

The Neuroloigcal Occupational Therapy MSc provides an opportunity for
occupational therapists wishing to specialise in the field of
neurological rehabilitation. It also aims to help senior practitioners
into more specialist roles within clinical practice, research or
educational environments.

Neurological rehabilitation encompasses a wide range of disciplines,
however, the focus of this course is to cover specific therapeutic
issues in depth. The course supports interdisciplinary practice. All
but the core Occupational Therapy module are taught jointly with
students enroled on the MSc Neurological Physiotherapy course. After
successful completion of these modules, you will proceed to a mentored
practice module, which integrates theory and clinical practice.

The course will enable you to develop knowledge of the theoretical
concepts of neural control and the principles of neurological
rehabilitation.

The course promotes theoretical concepts and professional practice
which will enable you to critically appraise current practice.

The course content is reviewed regularly to remain responsive to
current practice developments.

Attendance for this course is flexible. You can study for one year
full-time and from two to five years part-time, attending the
University from as little as one afternoon and up to two days per
week.

Career opportunities

The course will enable you to reflect and critically appraise current
practice. You will develop and consolidate skills required for
clinical specialist roles and consultant therapist posts.

You will gain knowledge of research methodologies and skills, which
could enable you to develop a career as a researcher.

Through the skills you will develop, education could become a
possible career option. The course could also help you to prepare for
managerial roles and furthermore, increased personal and professional
confidence could open many doors and extend your range of career
options.
