As mentioned in Fieldwork IIA, the intent of the online component of Fieldwork Level II is to optimize your learning experience while you are participating in your fieldwork rotation.
As with Fieldwork IIA, you will have weekly communication with the university faculty via this platform during the twelve weeks of your fieldwork experience.
Each weekly correspondence will correspond to a Unit in the course platform.
Units or weeks 1, 3, 6 and 12 will consist of contact with your AFWC regarding your performance on the rotation with updates from you and your Fieldwork Supervisor (FWS) on your progress.
Units or weeks 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 and 11 will consist of correspondence between you and an assigned occupational therapy faculty member. The faculty member to whom you are assigned will have clinical expertise in the area of practice of your current fieldwork site.
Please refer to the course syllabus in the file library regarding the correspondence requirements of your weekly interactions.
Dialogue between you and the faculty member is designed to enhance your learning experience throughout your fieldwork rotation with respect to area of practice.
Please understand your dialogue with faculty may only consist of topics associated with practice such as assessments, interventions etc.
All other concerns regarding your fieldwork such as dates of the rotation, missed dates, supervision, site concerns or requirements, etc will be managed by the Academic Fieldwork Coordinator (AFWC) for your program and the Clinical Education Department. If you are uncertain whom to address your question or concerns, please contact your AFWC for clarification.
Please refer to the
Student Handbook on the USA web site, student portal section for any questions regarding policy and procedures for Clinical Education Level II Fieldwork.
