WFOT Individual Members are invited to contribute to the many different projects that are in progress, to contribute to the work of WFOT. The four WFOT programme areas – Education, Research, Practice Development and Standards and Quality - are actively recruiting interested therapists to work in whatever way they want to within these projects.
Qualified occupational therapists and students who are interested in becoming individual members of WFOT are able to do so through their national association. It is only through your membership in your national association that your qualifications can be confirmed and the status of individual membership of WFOT be given due recognition.
Membership in the WFOT does not imply that you graduated from a WFOT approved educational program. The WFOT has no mechanism for approving the academic credentials of individual members.
You can become an Individual WFOT Member by paying an annual subscription to your national association which then forwards your membership fee directly to WFOT. If you were educated in a country that is different to the one you are currently working in, it should still be possible for you to become an WFOT Individual Member. Either contact the national association of the country you are currently working in or the national association of the country that you were educated in.
If you have not graduated from a WFOT approved educational programme, please encourage your educational institution to undertake the process of recognition that your national association has established.
