This full time, 12-week affiliation is one of two fieldwork Level II experiences that follow successful completion of evaluation and intervention coursework. This clinical education component gives the student an opportunity to apply didactic material and to interact with clients/patients in a therapeutic setting. Practice of evaluation, goal setting, note writing, and application of therapeutic techniques appropriate to the student's skill level are carried out under the supervision of a registered occupational therapist or other qualified personnel. Students are expected to be functioning as entry-level therapists at the end of each fieldwork experience. Successful completion of this fieldwork education component is a requirement for graduation from the Occupational Therapy Program.
