Fieldwork education is a critical part of our curriculum. The purpose of fieldwork experience is to provide students with the opportunity to integrate academic knowledge and apply occupational therapy skills at progressively higher levels of performance to become competent entry-level occupational therapists. We see you as an extension of our academic program and want to help you to develop your skills as a fieldwork educator to accomplish this purpose. This page is intended to be a resource to help new fieldwork educators set up programs and guide established fieldwork educators in strengthening their competencies. Contact us with questions or suggestions for our fieldwork program.
