Fieldwork education is a valuable component of the entry level master of occupational therapy program. Fieldwork provides the opportunity to connect the knowledge learned in the classroom to the various practice arenas of occupational therapy.
This website has been created to provide support to our level one and level two fieldwork educators. This website may be useful for practitioners wanting:
- Ideas and information that is instrumental in establishing new fieldwork placements,
- Ideas and information that can assist occupational therapists who are new to the fieldwork educator role, and
- Ideas and information that provides support and continuing education to occupational therapists that have been in the fieldwork educator role for many years.
Please visit this site frequently, as it will be updated throughout the year with new ideas and information as it becomes available. The "News for Fieldwork Educators" link will be an important tool for keeping abreast of hot topics, regulations, critical fieldwork issues, and continuing education opportunities.
