Fieldwork is a crucial part of the Shenandoah University’s Division of Occupational Therapy (SUDOT) education and occurs throughout the curriculum.
Such experiences provide role modeling and supervised hands-on opportunities to apply occupational therapy knowledge in real practice. Fieldwork takes place in a variety of settings and emerging areas of practice. Four types of fieldwork experiences are included within the curriculum, to include, two Level I experiences and Level II experiences.
Please be aware that fieldwork placements may be limited or unattainable in out of state locations due to varying state restrictions.
