OT personal statement helpWatch
I am planning to do a degree in occupational therapy due to seeing firsthand the incredible work they did with my mum before she passed away. I am not sure what I can do to give myself more of an insight into it and what I can say on my personal statement. Any suggestions for books, podcasts etc would be extremely helpful thanks
Part 1 - having seen the amazing work of OT's with my mother, I am convinced it is the career for me. I'm also intrigued by the vast range of services that OT's provide, and feel that at ACME university I can really reach my potential. I'm particularly interested in your university because of your outstanding reputation for OT, and that you are accredited with <insert organisation here>.
Part 2 - I am sure that I will be an outstanding OT because of my dedication, time management, captaining the hockey club thus showing leadership etc etc.
Part 3 - In researching whether or not I wanted to be an OT, I have gained work experience at <insert hospital here>, and have performed extensive reading around the profession through reading <insert journals / RCOT references here>. I have also spoken with many OT's who have said <xyz>.
In conclusion, I believe I have the transferable skills and dedication, mixed with a genuine passion from improving people's lives that will make me a highly competent and caring OT.
