Internships and Fieldwork
Students in the occupational therapy graduate program will complete two, full-time internships, lasting 12 weeks each, working in the field under the direction of experienced therapists. More than 300 fieldwork sites affiliated with the Springfield College Department of Occupational Therapy extend across the country and offer a wide range of experiences with people with differing disabilities and conditions, with different treatment approaches, and in various practice settings. Our full-time academic fieldwork coordinator will work closely with you to arrange field placements that help you meet your professional goals.
