New Member Award (VIC): Occupational Therapy School of Victoria Clinical Award
The Occupational Therapy School of Victoria Clinical Award was introduced at the 28th OTA National Conference in July 2019. In 1974 the Occupational Therapy Trust Fund was created after the Occupational School of Victoria was dissolved. The Government at the time took over all responsibility of training and educating occupational therapists and Allied Health Professionals. Trustees of the Occupational Therapy Trust Fund decided to hand over the mandate of this fund to Occupational Therapy Australia, to provide opportunities for growth and development within the profession.
