OT-630: Fieldwork II-A

8 credit hours
Includes a 12-week in-depth fieldwork experience in delivering occupational therapy services to clients, focusing on the application of purposeful and meaningful occupation in an approved setting under the supervision of a currently licensed occupational therapist with a minimum of one year practice experience. The supervisor guides and mentors the student and serves as a role model for ethical practice. The experience is designed to promote clinical reasoning and reflective practice in a setting that demonstrates client-centered, meaningful, occupation-based interventions. The opportunity to apply the didactic materials provided throughout the curriculum will occur during the fieldwork placement. Setting assignments will be reflective of the diversity of occupational therapy practice settings.

Prerequisites: all OT/HS courses except OT 640, 650, 670, and 680
