Master of Occupational Therapy Practice

The Master of Occupational Therapy Practice course is a two year, accelerated learning program that will enable students with a completed Bachelor degree, to obtain a professional, entry level qualification at a postgraduate level of study, to practice as an Occupational Therapist. It is an integrated curriculum centered on Scenario-Based Learning (SBL). It is offered at the Peninsula campus of Monash University.

The Master in Occupational Therapy Practice (MOTPrac) is a full-time course over two years from July to May (mid-year intake). It will operate over 72 weeks and include 1000 hours of fieldwork education commensurate with World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) Minimum Standards for the Education of Occupational Therapists (2002).

At Monash we strive to develop OT graduates who are:

  • Occupation-focused, socially responsible, culturally respectful, and globally aware
  • Critical, self-reflective, flexible and collaborative in their approach to their work
  • Effective communicators, team members and ambassadors of an occupational perspective of health
  • Able to critically appraise, apply and translate knowledge into practice
  • Able to innovate, create and facilitate professional practice / knowledge development
  • Committed to lifelong learning and advancement of the occupational therapy profession

Higher achieving students may be eligible to complete this as research to the equivalent of honours standard to be eligible to apply for a research masters or PhD program on completion.
