OCTH 2072 - Professional Seminar II
All pre-professional General Education credits Co-requisites or prerequisites: OCTH 2019, and 2029.
This seminar is concurrent with OTA Practice Level II Fieldwork A and B and is the second in a series of two courses that support the student’s transition to Level II fieldwork, practice and employment. Selected topics are considered each week including the contextual influences on the practice settings where students are completing fieldwork, professional development and continuing competence, supervision, becoming a fieldwork educator, and professional advocacy. Students create an electronic portfolio as they progress through fieldwork that can be used when seeking employment. Attendance at the New Jersey OT Association annual conference and participation in the Rutgers School of Biomedical and Health Science’s Inter-professional Education Day are seminar highlights. The processes for preparing for and taking the NBCOT Certification Exam and obtaining State Licensure are reviewed as part of this seminar.
