Occupational Therapists are health care professionals who help individuals solve the problems that interfere with their ability to do the activities that are important to them. They work with people who are challenged by accident, handicap or disease. These challenges can significantly impact an individual’s ability to lead a productive and independent life. Occupational Therapists help patients overcome these obstacles.
St. Mary’s Occupational Therapy Department aims to provide high quality services to individuals experiencing a decrease in their autonomy or function due to illness, injury or the aging process. We offer services across all clinical programs and specialties for both in-patients and out-patients. As a teaching department affiliated with the School of Physical and Occupational Therapy, McGill University, the department receives Occupational Therapy students of all levels.
