Fieldwork placements provided by our clinical partners provide students with the opportunity to integrate theoretical and practical knowledge and to develop professional behaviours and skills. We thank the facilities, the fieldwork coordinators, and the preceptors who work with the University to provide these essential and exciting clinical learning opportunities for our students.
Note Regarding Students from Other Universities
If you get a call or email from a student from another university requesting a placement at your facility, you should direct them back to their university to speak with their Fieldwork Coordinator. National and international out-of-catchment placements must be arranged through the Fieldwork Coordinator at the students’ university. OT students have been instructed by all Canadian university Fieldwork Coordinators that they are not to contact facilities directly to arrange their own placements. Please review the CAOT’s Fieldwork opportunities for occupational therapy students studying outside Canada to learn more about the process.
NEW: OT Clinicians Needed
The Year 2 MScOT students are doing advocacy presentations using a Pecha Kucha approach. We are looking for OT clinicians to watch a group of presentations, provide feedback and give each student a score out of 20.
Pecha Kucha means ‘chit chat’ in Japanese. This method of presentation uses 20 slides, for 20 seconds a slide, with visuals only. It is a fun and engaging way to do a presentation, which will help develop students’ communication competencies. The students are required to advocate for an issue using this presentation style.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Andrea Duncan by December 15, 2022 (email@example.com) indicating your preferred date/campus as noted below.Student presentation dates:
- Friday, February 3, 2023, 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm at St. George Campus (UTSG)
- Friday, February 10, 2023, 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm at Mississauga Campus (UTM)
We are looking for 11 markers at UTSG on February 3 and 5 markers at UTM on February 10. There will be approximately ten students in each group.
Many thanks for your consideration of this opportunity and support of our students. Please let us know if you have any questions.
