This is the first of two in-depth clinical experiences designed to transition students to entry-level occupational therapists. Under the supervision of a licensed occupational therapist, students will further develop professional behaviors, clinical reasoning, and clinical skills to provide occupational therapy intervention services in a traditional or emerging area of practice. Students will be required to complete 12 weeks of full-time (40 hours/week) fieldwork and demonstrate entry-level competencies appropriate for the assigned fieldwork setting, and participate in online discussions to enhance professional development. Fieldwork assignments will be determined in collaboration with the Academic Fieldwork Coordinator. Pre-requisites: Successful completion of all OT courses and general education requirements. Credit: 11 hours.
