The Occupational Therapy Fellowship Program at MossRehab begins in July of each year and runs for 53 consecutive weeks. The program provides an intensive, 1-year experience combining clinical and didactic learning opportunities.
The foundation of the program is over 250 hours of one-on-one mentoring with expert clinicians at MossRehab. This occurs concurrently with clinical practice as a treating therapist, as the fellow moves through several clinical rotations within the diagnostic services at MossRehab. The fellow will also receive over 100 hours of didactic instruction following a curriculum designed to comprehensively address occupational therapy practice in physical rehabilitation.
Additional components of the program include structured learning experiences in areas related to clinical specialty evaluations, teaching, support groups, research, and scientific inquiry.
Fellowship graduates will complete activities to support a board certification application for physical rehabilitation from the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) that includes structured, reflective activities.
