OT 765 Fieldwork Level II B (3)
This course offers supervised full-time fieldwork at agencies and organizations approved by the faculty in accordance with established AOTA and ACOTE standards. Two three-month affiliations provide a diversity of professional experience in both psychosocial and physical disabilities across the developmental continuum. Selection and scheduling of fieldwork sites is a collaborative process between the student and the Academic Clinical Coordinator to ensure that the student's educational needs and professional requirements are properly met. Direct supervision is provided by a registered Occupational Therapist with at least one year of experience. A mandatory seminar is scheduled during each fieldwork experience to provide support, facilitate the sharing of experiences and strategies, and promote successful integration of academic training with professional clinical practice.
