Stage 1

Master the Content

‘Communicate Clearly and Competently’ is a unit that will establish your ‘voice’ as a practitioner. Have you ever felt nervous to communicate your case? your questions? your treatment plan? your value? You are not alone! There are practitioners all over the world who desire to have a stronger voice in their practice. This is your chance! You will have much opportunity to accomplish these goals in a supported environment while learning how to be a stronger clinician. Some of these opportunities include closed facebook group, Portal groups on Marco Polo, a monthly zoom meeting, weekly Facebook LIVES, and more.

Stage 4

Practice Confidently

‘Practice Confidently’ will guide you through goals that will bring you to a place of confidence in all elements. of clinical practice. By completing the goals throughout this course, the student and/or practitioner will naturally find themselves in a place of leadership. During this stage you, you will be given opportunities to lead discussion, discuss the potential to mentor others, and work towards discussing how you can use all of the information you learned throughout the year to foster the same skills in others.

“My favorite part about BOT is growing and talking in a community of OTs striving to learn more about being more holistic in care and not being afraid to use all the parts of the OTPF in actual practice! I have learned to not be afraid of standing, walking, dynamic balance, or other types of “PT” Movements because it does help my patients reach their goals”.

“I love having the ability to brainstorm clinical problems with people I don’t work with, and access to a ton of treatment information. I have learned to expand my ability to treat physically involved patients and be confident in my knowledge that OT is more than just sitting at a table doing fine motor skills.”
