Abstract

The study was done to determine perspective of 2nd to 5th year Occupational Therapy students on cultural sensitivity. Respondents were asked to fill out questionnaire that involved situation regarding values, beliefs, language, religion and practices. Results reveal that year level does not affect the perspective of the occupational therapy student regarding the cultural sensitivity. The exposure and experiences might affect their point of view about cultural issues but these cannot be a reliable basis since the students have different cultural background. Occupational Therapy students should be exposed to situation that will help them become more culturally competent. They should join activities that will expose them to people of different cultural background.
