Kent State University Holds OTA Fieldwork Presentation

The Ohio Occupational Therapy Association, Youngstown-Warren district, recently met at Kent State University at East Liverpool. Academic Fieldwork Coordinator Nina Sullivan gave an hour long presentation on The Fieldwork Educator’s Guide to a Successful Internship. Her main objective was to increase knowledge on traits, skills and tools that are useful for successful supervision of Level I and II Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) students.  Following Sullivan’s presentation, several Level II students shared their perspectives regarding fieldwork. Their thoughts and experiences allow Kent State educators to improve the quality of the program for future OTA students.
