OT 640 Level Two Fieldwork

The purpose of Level II fieldwork is to provide occupational therapy students with the opportunity to apply the academic knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to selected clinical settings under the supervision of a practicing clinician. Placements are selected to expose students to a variety of client ages and diagnoses and clinical settings, and provide experiences that promote clinical reasoning, professionalism and reflective, ethical practice. The goal of these placements is to produce competent, entry-level, generalist therapists. The American Occupational Therapy Association requires that Level II fieldwork be the equivalent of 24 full-time weeks and each of these courses involves 12 weeks of full-time supervised clinical practice. After completion of both fieldwork courses, students return to campus for sessions to prepare them for the registration exam and facilitate their transition to professional life. These two fieldwork courses may be taken in any order. Credit(s): 6 each course.

Prerequisite(s): OT 628  and OT 638
