Clinical Experiences

In the entry-level master's degree in occupational therapy program at Quinnipiac, students participate in level I fieldwork experiences in as much as seven different settings. These settings may include subacute/short term rehabilitation, schools, sensory integration clinics, adult outpatient clinics, mental health settings, and home care as well as specialized practice settings such as hand therapy, hippotherapy, splinting and orthotic provision, low vision center, and driving evaluation program. Students also complete three full-time affiliations, with two lasting 12-weeks at a variety of settings within health care, academic, or community-based systems that will give you practical occupational therapy experience with various populations, as well as valuable job contacts you'll need when you graduate.

Quinnipiac occupational therapy students have participated in 12-week fieldwork experiences throughout the United States.
