Two levels of fieldwork are required of occupational therapy students enrolled at St. Ambrose University. The fieldwork curriculum is comprised of 24 weeks plus a 16-week experiential component.
Students are responsible for their own transportation, travel, housing, specific health- or compliance-related costs for these experiences, and continue to pay tuition while completing their field experiences.
There are a myriad of other hands-on experiences and service learning opportunities within many of the classes. Pages on Level I and Level II fieldwork describe the programs set up by the fieldwork coordinators and also offer a listing of forms for current students and fieldwork educators.
