About Fieldwork Education

Fieldwork education is a crucial part of our curriculum. The purpose of the fieldwork experience is to provide our students with the opportunity to integrate academic knowledge with the application of skills at progressively higher levels of performance and responsibility so that they become competent entry-level OT practitioners. This page is meant to be a resource to help fieldwork educators set up their programs and guide established fieldwork educators in strengthening their skills and programs.

If you are interested in supervising students for either Level I or Level II Fieldworks, please contact:
