Ono Occupational Therapy Grads Pay It Forward

What does it take to become an occupational therapist? Students in the field are required to study 5 days a week for 3.5 years, which adds up to over 1,000 hours of practical/clinical training. But there is still one final step after completing all of their degree requirements: they need to be licensed and accredited by the Ministry of Health – an extensive test that covers all of the material they learned throughout their studies. Just ahead of the holidays, new graduates from Ono Academic College’s Department of Occupational Therapy gathered to take their licensing test. At the meeting, the graduates heard a lecture by accessibility counselor Yael Roitman about preparation and time management prior to the exam. Afterwards, a panel of occupational therapists who completed their studies at Ono’s Occupational Therapy Department last year, including Lior Bergman, Ella Sasson and Hadar Finer, provided helpful tips and tricks on how to ace the exam.  That’s the Ono way: to give back what you received to ensure the success of others!
