- Some very genuine colleagues and coworkers that will become close friends and will grow professionally and personally with you. Some of my lifelong friends I owe to Bridgepoint. You will learn a lot from working together with them as a team.
- The organization evolves and adapts on an ongoing basis. This has been good for key issues related to patient care and safety. Leadership has been visionary at times to seek out ambitious goals and carve out a role for managing highly complex clients.
- There are opportunities to participate, learn and help lead these quality improvement projects. There are many OT experts at Bridgepoint that have accomplished miracles for patient care and have influenced program design to ensure best outcomes for the long term.
- There are ample opportunities to facilitate labs at UofT, take clinical students, research students, MD student shadowing, etc.
- Education funding is available, and there is a standardized process to apply for it.
- You will learn a lot about Occupational Therapy. At times, you will work to full scope and apply several non/standardized assessments and treatments, work with assistants / physicians / specialists, Physios, SLPs, SWs and nursing leadership to generate comprehensive patient care and discharge plans. You will develop expertise in several areas: seating, falls prevention, cognitive assessment, discharge planning, dementia care, pressure relief, return to driving, etc. etc. If you combine this with student supervision, research, leadership, education, and CPD, you'll feel very accomplished - more...
