Course Description

Level I fieldwork is an integral part of the curriculum design woven in with the didactic components of the program. Level I fieldwork provides students with the opportunity to work with individuals across the lifespan in a variety of settings. OTD 528 will include clinical observations of adults and adolescents in, but not limited to, alternative high school, dementia care facilities, independent and assisted living facilities, and acute mental health, specifically focusing on the psychosocial components of their care. During faculty-led, on- and off-site fieldwork experiences, students will complete learning activities in order to assess their understanding and comprehension of the OTD didactic coursework. Activities and assignments will coincide with OTD 520, OTD 522, and OTD 524.
