The Occupational Therapy Assistant Program at Sacramento City College serves a wide geographic area throughout northern California. Our students travel from many parts of the region to attend school. Most do not move to Sacramento, hoping to remain in their communities upon graduation.
Fieldwork placements. We are always seeking new clinical sites for our students. Per our accreditation requirements, we must offer two levels of fieldwork in a range of settings. Students at Sacramento City College must complete 20-40 hours of Level I fieldwork in three settings: pediatric, cognitive/behavioral, and physical dysfunction. Level II fieldwork requires two distinct settings, each for 320 hours. Not only does taking fieldwork students support the profession by helping programs provide required clinical experiences, it provides employers an opportunity to observe the abilities of potential employees, reducing recruitment time and costs. If you are interested in participating in this vital aspect of occupational therapy education, please contact our Academic Fieldwork Coordinator, Lynette Beadles, at BeadleL@scc.losrios.edu.
