    Hi, I was wondering, if anybody knows, what might be the best career to pursue out of these three:
    - Physiotherapy
    - Occupational Therapy
    - Operating Department Practitioner

    I am so confused, I originally applied for physio, then realized maybe it's too competitive and I have limited work experience, I was refused all my choices, and was very sad.
    I then thought about OT, because it's a similar subject, it's about caring for others, it's not exactly the same but it's one of the more similar subjects.
    Then the other day someone brought to my attention, operating department. So I have an idea what this would be about, it does sound like it could play to my strengths, my only concern would be is it a limiting choice, the other two have many career options, what are the positive aspects of operating department practice?
    Any replies/ comments appreciated! X x x
