Switching careers later on

Can I switch from physiotherapy to occupational therapy after some years of relevant practice and experience in physiotherapy in future? In UK?

Lots of people switch careers. It is likely that you would need additional training/qualifications to change healthcare specialism. :smile:

Yes you can. You could switch to anything you want but you’ll need to do another degree - likely the MSc I imagine. The reality is there is no point unless there is something really really specific you want to do in the OT field that you can’t do as a physio or vice versa.
