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. (It is also important to note that clinical educators receive continuing education credits for supervision of students during their fieldwork).

Level I Fieldwork Objectives: The Level I OT Fieldwork Objectives identify the early skills that students should achieve for each practice area during each level I rotation.

Level II Fieldwork Objectives: The Level II OT Fieldwork Objectives outline all areas that students must achieve entry-level competence in by the end of their 12 week fieldwork rotation.

Level II Suggested Progression of Expectations: This outline can help you as the Fieldwork Educator structure your supervision over the 12-week period. The goal is to steadily increase the student’s treatment responsibilities throughout the rotation.

Weekly Conference Form: The weekly conference form is a great communication tool that helps students and Fieldwork Educators discuss current performance and future goals in a structured manner to maximize clarity.

AOTA Fieldwork Data Form: This form is used to facilitate communication between occupational therapy programs, fieldwork sites, students, and fieldwork educators. It allows programs to document sites in order to satisfy accreditation requirements, while providing students with valuable site information regarding expectations and environment of the fieldwork site.

Brenau University 2018-19 Liability COI: Fieldwork students are covered by Brenau’s blanket liability insurance policy. The details can be reviewed here.

Blank Forms and Evaluation Samples

The Arrival Form should be completed and submitted on the student’s first day of Fieldwork. It outlines the objectives that should be discussed and agreed upon by the student and fieldwork educator and is used to schedule all parties for electronic evaluations through our E*Value system.

Level I Arrival Form                    Level II Arrival Form

Level I Evaluation Sample: The Level I Evaluations are completed electronically through E*Value, but this sample allows you to prepare for the necessary objectives and scoring instructions. The same form is used for both midterm and final.

AOTA Fieldwork Performance Evaluations (Level II Evaluation): The Level II Evaluations are completed electronically through E*Value.

The Student Evaluation of the Fieldwork Experience (SEFWE) is the student’s opportunity to provide feedback on the site, Fieldwork Educator, and their overall Fieldwork experience. This form is completed electronically by the student prior to the end of the rotation and is reviewed with the Fieldwork Educator.
