Occupational Therapy Program Fieldwork

Successful completion of Level I and Level II Fieldwork is a requirement for granting a Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy Program. 

The Alvernia University Academic Fieldwork Coordinator collaborates with the Fieldwork Educator and the student prior to, during, and following fieldwork assignments.  The Academic Fieldwork Coordinator schedules all fieldwork placements and serves as a liaison between Alvernia University and the fieldwork site.  Level II Fieldwork should be completed within twenty-four (24) months following completion of academic preparation.
