Course Description

This is the second of two course series that intends to facilitate students’ acquisition of clinical and critical reasoning skills necessary for occupational therapy practices. The course integrates the knowledge that students have gained in program coursework by applying the acquired OT skills and knowledge to specific and/or general life and clinical scenarios. The course uses a problem-based learning (PBL) format as the context by infusing high fidelity simulation learning modules in order for students to develop clinical reasoning and sound theoretical bases essential to the work of an occupational therapist.

Three faculty participate in the lab under the guidance of the lead instructor.

This course is held in the Summer semester on Monday from 9:00 to 11:50.

Timeline: Application reviews will begin immediately and continue until we fill the position. Rank is commensurate with experience and credentials.
