The Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy (OSOT) has been involved in many projects, events and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programmes.
In 2004 and 2007 the department hosted 2 international events: the Occupational Science UK and Ireland Conference (2004) and the European Network of Therapists in Higher Education (ENOTHE) Conference in 2007.
In Sept 2013 we will host another international event - an Occupational Science Conference. "Occupation: Awakening to the Everyday". For further information on this conference visit www.oscork2013.com
Other CPD events have included provision of workshops for post graduate training in Sensory Integration and in the use of the Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS).
The department also takes part in the European Erasmus programme. Staff and student exchanges have taken place between Cardiff University, Wales and more recently, University College Lillebaelt, Odense, Denmark as part of this scheme.
In 2010, the department was successful in seeking a Fulbright Scholar to partner with UCC. The scholar worked in the department for 6 months from June to December 2011 during which time she did some teaching and worked on research projects with the OSOT team.
