As the Derby Occupational Therapy Society, we encourage to increase continued professional development for students by either providing the opportunity to organise events, attend our events or support students to attend external events.
We facilitate an educational, charity, revision and social event each month, aiming to capture all needs of the student. This has proved successful in integrating cohorts and giving students the confidence to attend CPD opportunities.
We would love to facilitate discussion around how CPD is viewed and accessed amongst Occupational Therapy Students nationally and internationally! We look forward so speaking with you all (past and present students)!
- What CPD events have you been able to access whilst being a student, has this been internal or external to your curriculum?
- How easy do you think it is to access CPD as a student alongside your studies?
- What barriers have you come across in terms of accessing CPD as a student (personally and structurally?
- What changes have you seen in the ability to access CPD as a student during your studies / since your studies?
