Fieldwork Educators

Fieldwork Overview

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.

Fieldwork supervisors are an extension of our academic program. Our goal is to help supervisors develop skills as a fieldwork educator. 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.
