As a clinical fieldwork educator you are an important part of the collaborative process of student education. In the clinic environments students can build on previous levels of knowledge and coursework through practical hands on experiences. The experience you facilitate in the clinical environment develop the intellectual curiosity, creativity, clinical reasoning and reflective practices so important to occupational therapy professionals. We are partners in teaching students about the holistic nature of occupational therapy by engaging the whole person, body, mind and emotions through client-centered, meaningful and occupation-based treatment and outcomes.
