Western Michigan University can’t thank you enough for your contribution to the occupational therapy profession by providing fieldwork education to future OT practitioners. At the very least, we can offer information on training opportunities, tools and educational resources to incorporate into your student program. We also encourage you to explore the fieldwork resources on AOTA’s website.
