  • Forum Thread: level ii fieldwork specific goals

    I'm about to do my first acute hospital placement. What are appropriate goals for this level? All my peers did their hospital placements first year, so their goals were less ambitious.

  • Forum Thread: Religious Exemption

    I am a new AFWC and have recently been asked by an incoming student if we have a religious exemption form regarding immunizations.

  • Forum Thread: Fieldwork Options in the Military?

    I'm a first year student in a MOT program in Tennessee. We are choosing level II fieldwork placements for next year and I would love to, if possible, go to a military base.

    Hi Everyone! I am in the process of choosing where I want to go for fieldwork. I have not really chosen what areas of OT I want to go into yet. I was wondering what settings would be good choices since I am only able to choose two places and to help me decide what area I may be interested in?

  • Forum Thread: Housing Assistance in Seattle Area for my LIIFW at Harborview Medical Center

    Hi OT Community, I will be starting my LIIFW on June 2, 2014 in Seattle, WA at Harborview Medical Center.
