The Home Of New Graduate and Early Career Occupational Therapists

The Kadia Lab is a home for New Graduate and Early Career OT’s across all areas of practice. Whether you are starting out on your journey as a career OT- or love supporting others who are walking the path you have trod, this is the place for you.

With an ever rapidly changing space in which Occupational Therapists work in,  The Kadia Lab seeks to be a space of connection, community, celebration and creativity.

Creating a space where together we can navigate and pivot in a highly responsive way to the needs of our communities and culture, maximising the opportunities for Occupational Therapists in this changing space. 

Knowlege Development

We get that bridging the gap between the educational space and clinical practice can be daunting. 

We have been there before – sitting in a training event, or even at a desk… wondering why we were never taught what it was that we are expected to know…

 

Fast track resources

Time alone does not equal competence.

Fast Track your learning and career growth by accessing the same swipe files that therapists use in their own clinical spaces to maximise learning, and remove the overwhelm. 

 

 

thrive and grow

Plants need nutrients, support, warmth and  a safe space to thrive.

The Clinical Education Team and the Collective Community are here to help you do exactly that – Grow!

 Your Career is Your Journey!

The OT Collective is here to help you unpack where you want to go… and how to get there!
