Occupational Therapy is a higher-education level profession, operating in the spheres of "human doing." Thinking about occupational therapy is about reflecting on the day-to-day doing and the meaning that the occupation has for the individual in order to help him rethink and sometimes even reconstruct that meaning in the face of his abilities and abilities to perform his daily actions.
A pioneer in the region, the Occupational Therapy Course at FMABC was recognized by the State Board of Education in 2008.
The curriculum of the course is based on a generalist, humanistic, critical and reflexive formation, in order to enable the graduating student to the professional exercise in all its dimensions.
For the structuring of the CTO-FMABC, the recommendations contained in the current National Curricular Guidelines were considered, as well as the experience accumulated by the course's professors, seeking to incorporate scientific, technological and educational advances in order to ensure the formation of qualified professionals to act in harmony with current health care policies.
In order to ensure the development of skills and competencies required for professional practice during training, the course is organized as follows:
In the first year, basic disciplines are developed, as well as specific subjects of Occupational Therapy. From the 2nd year on, in addition to the theoretical-practical classes, the specific practical activities of the FMABC Occupational Therapy Course are developed, with increasing complexity, from assisted practice (observation stage) to the supervised stage that occurs in the 4th year.
During the training, the CTO-FMABC student learns to analyse activities so that, from this analysis, he can understand the subject's forms of participation and then train and / or adapt daily living, work and leisure activities.


The Occupational Therapy course provides students with participation in institutional projects such as the Rondon Project developed alongside with other institution's courses, as well as elaborating institutional projects such as Pro and Pet-Health.
Inaugurated in 2010, the Adapto Workshop (Project for the Manufacture of PVC Adapted Furniture) produces low-cost furniture that facilitates the accessibility and rehabilitation of children with neuromotor dysfunctions.
Second-year students develop the Interdisciplinary Symposium to discuss topics fostering teamwork.
