Level IIA Fieldwork at Pacific University is a twelve week, full-time (40hours/week) experience taken during
the summer semester of the second year. This experience is in settings which provide occupational
therapy services to people who are experiencing occupational dysfunction. Typical settings include
medical and psychiatric hospitals, outpatient clinics, community settings, skilled nursing facilities,
schools, early intervention programs, and innovative practice settings. A seminar assists students to
integrate previously learned didactic content. Experiences from Level IIA Fieldwork using "real life"
examples for application of key theoretical concepts bridge the classroom concepts with practice and
promote higher levels of critical reasoning. (Level II FW Overview, 2013)
