Fieldwork Level IIA is the first in a series of two full-time experiential learning courses that provides the opportunity to apply all theory and skills learned throughout didactic coursework to deliver skilled occupational therapy services under the supervision of a licensed occupational therapist. Level II fieldwork requires 12-weeks at an approved traditional, non-traditional, or role-emerging occupational therapy setting. Through active collaboration with the fieldwork educator and Academic Fieldwork Coordinator, the course provides an in-depth experience for students to engage in the occupational therapy process with a gradual reduction in supervision until the student competently performs as an entry-level therapist within the practice setting. In addition, the course promotes development of professional skills in line with the profession’s ethics and standards.
