Working as an Occupational Therapist in another country
Working in a different country can be a unique, enriching, professional and personal experience. You should ensure that your personal physical and emotional health is excellent before embarking on your transition to another country. You must be able to withstand changes in climate, nutrition, working hours, conditions and human attitudes to enable you to be an effective occupational therapist in the new country.
The World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) has produced a document giving general information and guidance for working as an occupational therapist in other countries, based on the experience of other occupational therapists.
