Service Learning in Guatemala

The Department of Occupational Therapy offered for the final year an international academic service learning option for occupational therapy majors in Summer 2019. Summer 2020 was cancelled due to Covid-19.

Now, the service learning component will transition to that of Level I fieldwork. Students in Xavier's clinical Occupational Therapy Doctorate (OTD) Program will in Year 3 engage in a Total Immersion Diversity Experience (TIDE) in fulfillment of one, Level I fieldwork experience. To that end, plans are underway to build upon the partnerships developed in Guatemala. Contact Stacia Galey, OTD, OTR/L, Academic Fieldwork Coordinator with questions and/or comments at
