Farewell to the 2016 Allied Health Honours cohort!
The school’s Allied Health Honours program runs as an embedded course in the final two years of the students’ occupational therapy and social work degrees.
Coupled with the demanding expectations of fieldwork, and the pressures associated with completing a great quality research project, it’s a tough two years for these high performing students!
The 2016 cohort of honours students, comprising thirteen occupational therapy students and one social work student, did the school proud by delivering well-constructed and fascinating talks at the annual Research Symposium, held on the 6 and 7 October 2016.
It was a great opportunity for the students to showcase all their knowledge about their research projects. The students spoke confidently and delivered high-quality presentations that would have looked fantastic on any conference stage! Topics ranged from ‘social work students’ understanding of domestic violence’ to ‘the use of assistance dogs for children with autism spectrum disorder’.
It’s been a wonderful year working with these talented and bright students. They will undoubtedly make the school very proud when they go out into the workforce, and use their evidence-based research skills to enhance their work as occupational therapists and social workers in the community.
