Start the Conversation

In these modules, we encourage you to share your experiences and ideas.

In the comment section below:

  • Introduce yourself

    Post something about yourself – your background and an interesting/fun fact about you.

  • Share a conversation with your students

    Discuss with your student what his/her expectations were of the first day of the placement. Were these expectations met? Did this conversation give you any new ideas for orienting students? Post your ideas.

  • Share some orientation materials

    We would like to develop a bank of materials used in different settings to prepare students for their placement. Do you have any materials you would like to share? For example, PowerPoint presentations, booklets, etc.

    I am an Occupational therapist who studied at Université de Montréal. I have been working at Ste Anne’s Hospital for about a year now.

    It will be my first experience as a future supervisor.

    Fun fact about me: I speak 4 languages!

    Hey everyone! I’m Sue and currently working at CLSC Cavendish with the Rehab team. I was working over a year in the Northern Ontario region at Timmins District Hospital as an Occupational therapist. Fun Fact: Ontario’s OT/PT can prescribe wheelchair/gait aid with the ADP license (Assistive Devices Program) which covers 75% of the cost.

    I am a PT working at the MAB-Mackay Rehab Center, though I have 12 years of experience with adult populations in acute care, rehab, out-patient and home care. I’ve supervised students in the past though not recently.

    Fun fact: I lived and worked in Chisasibi (James Bay) for 2 years.

    Bonjour,
    Je travaille comme ergothérapeute au Centre de soins prolongés Grace Dart depuis 21/2 ans et je suis enthousiaste à l’idée de prendre une première stagiaire. J’aime être en relation avec les autres et l’enseignement est quelque chose que j’aimerais éventuellement faire.
    Fait intéressant à mon sujet: j’ai fait mes études en ergo en tant qu’adulte et chef de famille. J’étais donc la plus âgée de ma cohorte.

    Hello, I am an OT who graduated from McGill and I’ve been working at Ste-Anne’s Hospital for close to two years now. I work with younger veterans and military as well as RCMP officers who have developed mental health challenges secondary to their service. Fun Fact: The Clinic I work for is a one of a kind program that receives clients from across the country and throughout the entire OSI Network we are a total of 5 OTs (that I know of to date!).
