Fieldwork Experience I (OCTA-217)
2014 Spring 
Location: All Locations Listed

Description: Development of professional skills through supervised application of treatment principles. Fieldwork is divided into two sections (Experience I and Experience II). Students will spend forty hours a week for eight weeks in each of two different sites (I and II) for a total of sixteen weeks. Fieldwork is designed to provide the opportunity to make the transition from "student to clinician." Within the eight weeks students are expected to perform the functions of a practicing therapist. It is expected that at the end of the eight weeks the student should be functioning at entry-level with close supervision needed. General objectives for each experience are the same. However, each fieldwork site in conjunction with the OTA educational program will develop specific objectives. Fieldwork will include at least one physical disability site and any of the following for the other section site: physical disability, psychosocial, pediatric, or hand therapy, or a combination. Pshychosocial experiences will be strongly encouraged within all fieldwork. A certified occupational therapy assistant and/or a registered occupational therapist with at least one-year clinical experience will closely supervise students. The lecture portion of this course will provide students with the necessary tools to navigate through the fieldwork process and ultimately the successful completion of the NBCOT exam.
