Fieldwork

General Information: Fieldwork is a valuable and vital component of the Occupational Therapy Program here at Brenau. Its purpose is to complement the curriculum by offering opportunities for the application of evidence-based interventions, clinical reasoning skills, and overall professional behaviors. Fieldwork may occur in a variety of settings including medical, community-based, or educational facilities. Through fieldwork, skills are gained that transition the individual from student to practitioner.

Brenau Fieldwork Packets are distributed by the university at the beginning of the semester to the student and Fieldwork Educator. It helps orient each party to the progression of fieldwork, as well as what is to be expected in the particular fieldwork level and area. Some of these forms are required to be reviewed and returned, while others are simply references to help everyone get the most out of their fieldwork experience!
