FIELDWORK COORDINATORS AND EDUCATORS

The University of Florida would like to welcome you as a partner in our Occupational Therapy Fieldwork Program. As a fieldwork educator you provide an important and unique role! You support the educational bridge linking our OT academic program with OT clinical practice. Your role as a fieldwork educator is to work together with OT faculty to guide our students in becoming competent and confident entry-level occupational therapists. This is a collaborative process reflecting our curriculum design and its application in your OT practice arena.

We appreciate the time and expertise you bring to fieldwork and hope that the enclosed materials will provide you with useful information about our occupational therapy program. Please take a few moments to review this information. We welcome any feedback you may have and encourage you to contact us if you have any questions.
