Anyone got any advice on how to get occupational therapy work experience or elective placements?
I have had three placements, and requested neurorehabilitation for all three, but haven't got it. My next placement will be psychosocial.
I am desperate for some experience in neuro/stroke rehab, as its what I would love to do once I have graduated.
There aren't many jobs as a support worker (I've signed up to job alerts!), and I would be willing to do free work experience.
Is just emailing hospitals around my local area (E. sussex and London) my only option?
I know networking is a good option, but conferences are very expensive to go to!
...or just paranoid?
