MS in Occupational Therapy Fieldwork Experiences
There are two types of fieldwork experiences designed to integrate and apply academic learning with clinical practice. Level I fieldwork education is integrated as part of coursework beginning in the first semester. Assignments are structured for students to observe clinical conditions, occupational and therapy practice in order to begin development of professional behaviors and clinical observation skills. Level II fieldwork experiences occur following completion of all coursework. The students apply techniques and theoretical concepts with the goal to develop entry-level practice skills. Students complete two 12-week full time placements to work with clients across the lifespan and with a range of conditions.
