Department of Occupational Therapy and Occupational Science


All occupational therapy students participate in fieldwork experiences. Students complete Level I Fieldwork experiences in conjunction with their academic courses. They then spend at least six months in Level II Fieldwork where they apply theories, knowledge and skills commensurate with the entry-level qualifications of a professional occupational therapist. Students must complete Level II Internships within 24 months following completion of academic preparation.

Level II Fieldwork is a full-time commitment often requiring additional time for preparation on the evenings and weekends.  Students are advised to eliminate employment during this time.  While local sites (within 90 miles of the university) are available, students may need to be assigned out of the local area or out of the state for one or both of the fieldwork experiences.  A lottery system is used for placing students in Level II Fieldwork who wish to remain in the local area.

For fieldwork related questions or concerns, students may schedule individual meetings with Ms. Jerry Bentley, Academic Fieldwork Coordinator, via the online meeting sign-up sheet.
