Prerequisites for Level I and Level II Fieldwork Experiences
Each fieldwork has medical requirements for the safety of its patients, employees, and students. Information about physicals, inoculations and other required and recommended procedures are listed in the prerequisite section of the fieldwork data form for each individual site. Students need to check the requirements and make sure all specific health requirements are completed before beginning fieldwork. Hepatitis B innoculation series or a signed declaration form, a physical exam, CPR certification, and annual PPD inoculations are required for all Ithaca College occupational therapy students.
Students are responsible for health insurance and malpractice insurance while at a fieldwork site. Malpractice insurance is purchased through the College for an approximate cost of $20 per student.
