This course provides the opportunity for students to integrate the didactic learning experiences with clinical practice for the adult to geriatric population under the supervision of a licensed occupational therapist or other qualified professional. Students will coordinate with the Academic Fieldwork Coordinator to arrange a fieldwork placement in a type of setting and/or area of focus other than their primary employment to maximize the learning experience. Particular emphasis is placed on development of professional behaviors, clinical reasoning skills and application of occupational therapy principles through guided reflection, written assignments, and online discussions. At least one of the two Level I Fieldworks must focus on the psychosocial factors that influence client participation. Pre-requisites: OCT 520, OCT 530. Credit: 1 credit hour. This course is offered in an online and clinical format
