Fieldwork I

Fieldwork I consists of the following:
  • Spring of first year: Mental Health - 32 hours spread over 8 weeks.
  • Fall of second year: Adult Physical Disabilities - 40 hours in 1 week.
  • Winter of second year: Pediatrics - 40 hours in 1 week.
  • Spring of second year: Geriatrics - 40 hours in 1 week.

Students complete Fieldwork I in conjunction with their coursework. This allows students to discuss fieldwork experiences with classmates and instructors and begin to develop clinical reasoning skills. All students are required to have current TB testing, immunizations, HIV, and CPR training complete before attending fieldwork. In addition, students have to be cleared through CertifiedBackground.com with a national background check.
