There are three Level I Fieldwork experiences that allow student to observe and interact with clients and clinicians as they identify and impact physical, psychosocial, and environmental factors that impact participation in occupation. These courses integrate information learned in OTD courses through both field experiences and classroom activities. Students are placed in a variety of settings to obtain hands-on experiences with individuals and groups.
The OTD program believes in learning by doing and as a result, active participation is encouraged with the level of involvement determined by the site, the clients served, and the student's skill level. During these experiences, students work to improve skills such as observation; communication – both written and oral; assessment; treatment planning; and intervention.
Students also grow to understand the OT process and how it impacts the clients and the facility. In the classroom, students have the opportunity to reflect on and synthesize their experiences. Through the clinical and classroom experiences, students should display ethics and critical thinking while promoting occupational justice for others.
