Inside the Episode
Natalie and Jess talk with Dr. Arameh Anvarizadeh, Fieldwork Coordinator at West Coast University about the state of fieldwork education in occupational therapy. We discuss the benefits (and there are many!) of taking students, and ways to manage the challenges that are commonly experienced by busy practitioners. We also discuss helpful resources, as well as strategies to become better mentors to students. Finally, we discuss alternative fieldwork models currently under consideration within occupational therapy.
