Fieldwork is a critical aspect of the curriculum, with 1,000 hours designated by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists accreditation standards as the minimum required level.
Within the Queen’s curriculum, you are exposed to a well-rounded fieldwork experience through a variety of planned experiences that are integrated, through the themes, with academic coursework.
Most students are placed within the Queen’s University catchment area (east to Cornwall, west to Oshawa and north to Peterborough, Smiths Falls and Perth).
Placements may also be obtained elsewhere in Ontario, across Canada or internationally, although placements outside of the Queen’s catchment area are limited and based primarily on extenuating circumstances for eligibility.
You are responsible for the costs associated with clinical placements.
While every effort is made to place you in your location of choice, this is not always possible.
