The Fieldwork experience at SPOTS is comprehensive, challenging, dynamic and rewarding. Students are assigned one or two primary supervisors, but will be expected to work directly with therapists other than the primary supervisor to complete a full caseload.


Purpose of Fieldwork:

Fieldwork (FW) education is a crucial part of professional preparation. Fieldwork experiences should provide the student with the opportunity to carry out professional responsibilities under supervision of a qualified occupational therapy practitioner (Acote 2011).
