Josie we have you do fieldwork experiences starting your junior year each semester as well as additional 3 month fieldwork experiences - much like internships - we place you all around the country - we have hubs in Houston and Las Vegas

Aside from these fieldwork experiences we also have tons of opportunities to get involved on and off campus to strengthen your skills and have fun
Nicole Galella

Just to touch on the fieldwork experiences- Having gone through all level 1’s at this point, the department makes sure you get a bit of everything from acute care to outpatient to pediatrics. I feel that the fieldwork set up has made me a well-rounded soon to be entry level OT, with a bit of experience in each practice area!
