Occupational Therapy Open Afternoon at Medway Campus

A really interesting afternoon on Friday at our Medway campus, for those who have been invited to accept a place at the campus on our BSc (hons) Occupational Therapy course starting in April 2015.

Present and recently qualified students  – Amy Spalding and Dave Thomas were available to show people around the campus .  They visited teaching rooms, skills labs and the mock up ward area where a whole range of teaching, equipment and techniques employed by occupational therapists were discussed.  The campus tour incorporated the two main teaching buildings, alongside the Drill Hall Library, Coopers Student Union building, and a brief introduction to the general layout of the joint universities campus Canterbury Christ Church University share with the University of Kent and University of Greenwich.

Nancy Clark, senior lecturer in Occupational Therapy was on hand to welcome and answer any questions that people had regarding the curriculum, campus or applications procedures. Samples of student work, books, journal articles and research papers and posters the department had presented at conferences were also available for viewing.

It had been an exciting morning on campus earlier on Friday, as Meridian TV were shooting a short article on the Skills Labs and how the university uses them within its teaching.  This will be shown on TV week commencing 15th April in its evening news items within the region.

For those of you unable to attend our Open Afternoon, you can see the Meridian TV short clip that was shot last Friday.    All morning condensed down into just over two minutes.  Click this link, where you can see some of our facilities including the ward and OT bathroom where you will be training.

Yes you too will be using Sim Man for basic life skills.

Disappointingly it doesn’t mention OT!!   Clearly editorial priorities.
