Information for Fieldwork Coordinators and Educators

The Program in Occupational Therapy at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis greatly appreciates the partnership we have with our fieldwork sites and our Fieldwork Educators. The resources below are for the Fieldwork Clinical Coordinators and Fieldwork Educators who work with our students.

We have included a Fieldwork Manual which describes how we prepare students for the Fieldwork Level II and doctoral capstone experiences.  We welcome questions from our Fieldwork Educators, but many questions are addressed in this manual.  Please let us know if there is information not included in this manual that you would like to have.

We urge all Fieldwork Educators to review what we teach our students and how they are prepared to provide evidence- and occupation-based OT treatment on fieldwork.

For those sites interested in partnering with us to educate our students in a fieldwork experience, please contact Leise Amann at amannl@wustl.edu.
