Meet Hannah

Occupational Therapist in Windermere’s Allied Health Graduate Program

The level of support Windermere provides is the best thing about the graduate program.”

Occupational Therapy graduate Hannah Vondrasek applied for Windermere’s Allied Health Graduate Program because she was attracted to Windermere’s key worker approach.

The key worker model allocates one worker as the primary contact for a child and their family within a transdisciplinary team. This has the advantage of providing a single contact for the family while enabling the professional to easily access a wide range of support, expertise and resources.

“I really liked that Windermere uses a key worker approach. Being in a multi-disciplined team means you can draw on wider support and the expertise of the team if you need it,” she says.

Due to complete her second year of the graduate program in 2022, Hannah is enjoying the benefits of being part of a comprehensive 24 month long program.  She says that having a full two years allocated to development and learning “allows you to really discuss and build on your clinical skillset and your reflection skills.”

She says that the opportunity for skill consolidation has also been invaluable. “I love the experience you can get from other people who have worked in the field for quite some time. They share their knowledge and you actually do a lot of day education programs where they come in and you go back through the basics,” she says.

Hannah loves having hands on, formal support while also knowing she can reach out for support at any time. “It is important to have both your managers and colleagues there to support you. There are also a lot of opportunities for impromptu support at Windermere, not just the formal structures,” she says.
