OT 244 - Level I Fieldwork: Traditional Settings of Occupational Therapy

An integral part of the training to become a certified occupational therapy assistant (COTA) is fieldwork experience designed to develop skills that underlie practice.

The student will be able to observe occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants, as well as practice a variety of skills needed to be a successful occupational therapy assistant, including site-appropriate assessments, interventions, and documentation under the supervision of an occupational therapist or occupational therapy assistant. The didactic portion of the class will include a student presentation on the fieldwork site and experience to be presented to the rest of the class.
