You are the occupational therapy assistant students’ bridge between academia and practice. Our mission is to provide you with a space to collaborate and communicate about important information related to fieldwork education.

  • The Annual Penn State Mont Alto Fieldwork Educator Workshop will take place on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (3.5 contact hours will be awarded). This is our way of thanking the 2013 FW educators for providing practice-based education (i.e. FW I and FW II) experiences to Penn State occupational therapy students.
  • Preceptor Education Program: Preceptors (clinical instructors) and students, take advantage of this free, on-line program as you prepare for clinical placements. Once you complete the short registration process and instantly receive your login information, you can access the PEP program anytime, anywhere. Each module takes about 30 minutes to complete and is full of quick tips and downloadable learning activities and tools. It is easy to navigate. It is colorful, fun to use, and many of the modules are designed so that preceptors and students can work through them together. A certificate can be printed at the end of the module to record the education completed.
