Students participate in fieldwork starting in their first year, establishing strong relationships with partner sites in the community. See more information on fieldwork and the community for Occupational Therapy graduate students.
During the summer, graduate students take a community practice course in which they identify an unmet need within a community or population and develop programming to address that need. Students have recently performed their community fieldwork in a number of diverse settings, including
- Homeless shelters,
- Philadelphia’s Chinatown,
- Philadelphia Museum of Art and
- Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA).
