Member Organisations of WFOT

Advertise with usAdvertise with us

The WFOT directly links 89 Member Organisations around the world, with an individual membership of in excess of 29,000 therapists and a national organisation membership that represents over 420,000 occupational therapists internationally.

WFOT has prepared guidelines to assist qualified occupational therapists who are interested in working outside their own country. This can be a unique, enriching professional and personal experience, for which the individual therapist needs to plan carefully. Refer to the "Working as an Occupational Therapist in Another Country" in the Resource Centre > General category
