New OTs on the Block! - Podcast Series

Designed for new occupational therapy graduates in Ontario, OSOT Presents: New OTs on the Block!  is a podcast series developed by graduating students to engage student occupational therapists and new graduates in conversations on topics relating to beginning occupational therapy practice. Providing information, tips, and thought-provoking topics, each podcast is intended to help support new OTs to succeed after graduation.
