What is fieldwork?
All education programs for health professionals require clinical or fieldwork experiences. These experiences tie what is taught in class to actual experiences students have with clients (patients) in treatment settings. Students get to practice their skills and apply the knowledge they have gained through these clinical fieldwork experiences. These experiences are completed during the daytime hours. Level I fieldwork is part of many of the core OTA courses in the curriculum and these clinical experiences are completed in addition to the semester coursework.
