Bachelor of Occupational Therapy

BOT (Bachelor of Occupational Therapy)

American Occupational Therapy Association , states that occupational therapists help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). The Bachelor of Occupational Therapy course at NIMS University uses a combination of conventional and situtation-based learning techniques.  The programme helps students incorporate theory into occupational therapy practice. We help students develop pragmatic models that  employ unique data driven (evidenced based) rules to guide clinical practice.
