Practica & Fieldwork

Level II Fieldwork must be completed within 12 months of the academic coursework on campus.

Prior to beginning fieldwork, students must show evidence of malpractice liability insurance ($2,000,000/$4,000,000). Liability insurance is mandatory and students are billed through the University when they register for courses that include a fieldwork experience. The University has negotiated a favorable group rate for enrolled occupational therapy students.

Additionally, all students must have the following: current cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification; current Hepatitis B series immunization; proof of measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) immunization; annual history and physical exam; annual Universal Precautions Training; annual tuberculosis (TB) testing; annual HIPAA training; and criminal background check in order to participate in all fieldwork experiences.
