Curriculum

Students begin the program in late May each year. Students will be involved in Level I Fieldwork experiences during the second year in the program.  Following completion of all academic courses, students undertake 24 weeks of full-time Level II Fieldwork and complete a professional seminar course. No part of Fieldwork Level I may be substituted for any part of Fieldwork Level II. The length of the entire program is two and a half years. Students must complete all Level II Fieldwork within 12 months following completion of the didactic portion of the program.

This program prepares the student to enter the field of occupational therapy with a background in basic sciences, theory, clinical reasoning, assessment and intervention, professional practice, and research. The curriculum covers the life span from birth to older adults, reflecting a broad perspective on physical, cognitive, emotional, social and biological issues affecting activities of daily living. Lectures, case studies, concept mapping, laboratory experiences and clinical education provide opportunities to integrate prior knowledge with new learning and develop competent clinical reasoning. This program fosters professional behavior and relies on community experiences to incorporate the classroom material into clinical practice. Lab sizes are restricted to ensure optimal student/ instructor ratios and to enable each student to receive comprehensive instructional and clinical experience.
